Plymouth man sentenced in federal drug case

SOUTH BEND — A second Plymouth resident was sentenced in a federal drug case.
Andy Mitchell, 32, Plymouth was sentenced by Judge Jon E. DeGuilio to 77 months in prison and four years of supervised release after pleading guilty to manufacturing controlled substances including a mixture or substance that contained methamphetamine over 50 grams, a schedule II controlled substance.
The case, U.S. v. Lamarco Beard, is the result of an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

In all, six defendants were named in the federal case.
The more than seven-month investigation involved the DEA, Indiana State Police and Plymouth Police Department.
Federal agents raided a home in South Bend July 25, 2011.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Frank E. Schaffer.
