Logansport Man Sentenced
LOGANSPORT - Noah Schafer, the Cass County Prosecuting Attorney, announced that Steven Anderson, 28, of Logansport, pled guilty to Dealing in Methamphetamine, and was sentenced in Cass Circuit Court by Judge Stephen Roger Kitts, II to fifteen years in the Indiana Department of Correction on Thursday. The sentence calls for twelve of those years to be executed in the Indiana Department of Correction, followed by three years on probation. Chief Deputy Prosecutor Tom Lupke handled the case.
The charge stemmed from an investigation by the Cass County Drug Task Force. On March 26, 2019 during the course of an investigation local law enforcement officers seized approximately one hundred and twenty grams of methamphetamine which Anderson possessed with the intent to deliver. Anderson had prior convictions on four felony cases, all drug related, with the earliest conviction stemming from an arrest in 2014. At the time of his arrest on this case, Anderson also had another pending felony drug case involving methamphetamine stemming from a 2018 arrest.
Prosecutor Noah Schafer commented after the sentencing: "We're grateful for the hard work of the Logansport Police Department and the Cass County Sheriff's Department in the Cass County Drug task force, and for their investigation that led to Anderson's arrest and conviction. This sentence sends a strong message that peddling poison in Cass County carries serious consequences."
