Indictments issued for illegal drug activity, theft

Posted: March 20, 2013 - 12:04am

A grand jury convened by the Juneau District Attorney’s Office indicted four people for illegal drug activity and one person for theft on Friday.

• Cristalynn M. Shipley, 38, and Mustafa A. Hassan, 38, were each indicted on one count of third-degee drug misconduct for delivering cocaine in Juneau on June 23, 2012. That’s a class ‘B’ felony that can carry up to 10 years in jail.

A judge issued $5,000 bench warrants for their arrests last week. The warrants indicated their last known addresses were in Juneau.

• Omar E. Campos-Montes, 35, was indicted on three counts of third-degree drug misconduct for delivering cocaine in Juneau on Aug. 2, Aug. 7 and July 27, 2012.

A $5,000 warrant was also issued for his arrest, and the warrant indicated his last known address was in North Douglas.

• A woman who was arrested at the Juneau airport last week was indicted on one count of third-degree drug misconduct for possessing methamphetamine on March 11, 2013.

Court records show Sheena M. Agustin, 24, was arraigned in Juneau Superior Court before Judge Philip Pallenberg on Monday. She pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go to trial in June. She is represented by the Public Defender Agency and is currently being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Police said in an earlier release that Agustin was caught transporting 68 grams of meth on a return flight from Seattle. She was arrested by Juneau Police Department officers working with federal law enforcement officers.

An affidavit states the case began when JPD received a tip from a confidential source that Agustin would be trafficking narcotics on that date. When contacted by police at the airport, Agustin admitting to carrying drugs internally and consented to have them removed.

The affidavit states Agustin told officers she was “new to the game” and was a drug user, not a drug dealer. She is next scheduled to appear in court on April 16.

• Zachary J. Heim, 37, an employee of the valley Tesoro gas station, was indicted on two counts of second-degree theft. That’s a class ‘C’ felony that can be punishable by up to five years in jail.

Heim is accused of stealing $300 from the till on Dec. 11, 2012, and $850 from the till on Dec. 12, 2012.

Court records show Heim is to be arraigned in superior court next month. He is represented by defense attorney Mark Choate.

Editor’s Note: Indictments are formal accusations of illegal activity and are not indicative of guilt.
