Two of three accept plea deal in drug case

Two of three defendants charged in a Bullhead City drug bust have entered plea agreements to resolve their cases short of trial. Jacob Earle Beane, 39, Matthew Grady Sandman, 40 and Micka Fern Kutschat, 26, were arrested when law enforcement officers conducted a February 5, 2018 search of a home in the 1800 block of Granada Drive.

Bullhead City police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said methamphetamine was found throughout the residence, as well as a small amount of marijuana and some drug paraphernalia. She said 18 grams of meth was located during a search of Beane’s vehicle.

Kutschat, Beane’s girlfriend, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of possession of drug paraphernalia on April 24. She faces guaranteed probation and no further jail time when sentenced by Judge Billy Sipe on June 26.

Sandman pleaded guilty May 23 to the reduced charge of attempted possession of dangerous drugs for sale. Prosecutor Rod Albright said Sandman possessed just under 4 grams of meth at the time of his arrest.

“The defendant admitted he was involved in the sale of meth and that he had a low amount because he was in the process of ‘re-upping’ or restocking,” Albright said. Sandman faces a 2-5 year prison term when sentenced June 25.

Beane awaits trial for possession of dangerous drugs for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.
