Grand Rapids man pleads guilty to selling ecstasy.

By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

HART — A 27-year-old Grand Rapids man pleaded guilty Monday, April 19, in 27th Circuit Court to a felony of possession with intent to deliver eutylone, which is a version of ecstasy.

Cameron Scott Andersen, of 830 Malta St., NE, was arrested by the State, Sheriffs’, Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) and was initially charged with another felony of controlled substance delivery/manufacture of a narcotic/cocaine 50-224 grams, according to court records. That charge was dismissed in a plea agreement.

Andersen testified before Judge Robert D. Springstead that he had 100 pills to sell for $1,800. “I got them from an individual in Grand Rapids,” he said. The drug deal took place at a carpool parking lot in Shelby Township last July, he said. He was caught by an undercover officer, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

The plea agreement calls for a six-month cap on his jail time, and two years probation will likely be ordered. 

Possession with intent to deliver eutylone/ecstasy carries a seven-year maximum sentence.

Sentencing is set for July 12 at 8:40 a.m.

Andersen and his attorney Keary Sawyer in appeared in court Monday via Zoom video conferencing due to COVID-19.
