Two of four women plead in drug house bust

McALESTER — Two of four women pleaded guilty recently in relation to a McAlester drug-house bust.

Rachel Easky, 26, of McAlester, entered a blind guilty plea to multiple charges in two separate cases. In the first case, she pleaded guilty to charges of unlawful possession of a controlled drug (methamphetamine) with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled dangerous substance (marijuana) and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Charges of conspiracy to traffic a controlled dangerous substance and child abuse by neglect were dismissed in that case. In the second case, Easky pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute a controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine). Easky is die back in court Jan. 9 to be sentenced.

Patricia Diane Beall, 48, of McAlester, pleaded guilty Nov. 30 to a charge of conspiracy to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance. She was fined $50,000, with all but $500 suspended, and she received a 20-year suspended sentence.

District 18 Drug and Violent Crimes Task Force agents executed a search warrant in a home on East Polk Street in McAlester on July 20. Task force officers, along with McAlester Police Department detectives and Drug Enforcement Administration agents, entered the home and found three women and a 17-day-old infant child in a bedroom.

“While finishing clearing the residence, a ‘one pot methamphetamine lab' was located in the laundry room of the residence,” an affidavit states.

Easky and Beall were charged along with Robin Allen, 49, of McAlester, and Marcella Dalpaos, 50, of McAlester.

After searching the entire residence, authorities found numerous items associated with the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Easky, Beall and Allen were charged July 23 in Pittsburg County District Court. Allen was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a minor. Allen is set for jury trial in January.

Dalpaos was charged in August in two separate cases. She has been charged with conspiracy to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine), unlawful possession of a controlled drug (methamphetamine) with intent to distribute, distribution of a controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine), maintaining a place for keeping /selling controlled substances and two counts of child abuse by neglect.

According to court records, a warrant for Dalpaos’ arrest has been issued and she has not yet been located by authorities.
