Trial Date Set for Man Charged With Multiple Felonies

A trial date has been set for April of next year in Fourth Judicial District Court for a Sheridan man charged with seven felonies. At an arraignment hearing Tuesday in District Court, 37-year-old Drell Amende pleaded not guilty to two counts of felony burglary, four counts of felony theft, and one count of felony alteration of a vehicle’s identification numbers. Between April 1 and late October of this year, Amende allegedly broke into a number of storage units in Sheridan County and stole numerous items. Amende was arrested for the alleged crimes on October 6.

District Court Judge Darci Phillips scheduled the 4 to 5 day jury trial to begin on April 24 and set the pretrial conference for March 21 at 9 am. If convicted on all counts, Amende faces up to 70 years in prison and fines of up to $70,000.

Also from District Court Tuesday,  Kishan Sangha was sentenced to 5 to 8 years in prison on the charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver – methamphetamine, and 5 to 8 years in prison for the charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver – heroin. The sentences will run concurrent to one another. Sangha was arrested on September 23, 2020 when the Sheridan Police Department received a report of potential drug sales at a residence in Sheridan. During the investigation, a male subject from California was identified as a supplier of methamphetamine from a local motel. A search warrant on Sangha’s motel room resulted in the seizure of methamphetamine and heroin.
