ANCHORAGE — After the raid of a Bethel home in connection with the sale of heroin and crack cocaine, six suspects have now been arraigned.


The six defendants — Melissa Beans, Ryan Daniels, Shawayne Jenkins, Eric Kinegak, Anthony Washington Jr. and Anthony Washington Sr. — appeared in court on Monday afternoon. All of the defendants pleaded not guilty to their charges, which range from selling heroin to attempting to destroy evidence, despite the large amount of drugs recovered at the scene: 47 grams of heroin and half a pound of crack cocaine.


When their attorneys requested reduced bail, each request was flatly denied and met with reasons why it would not change.


A calendar call was set for all six defendants on Dec. 22, with a pre-trial date of Jan. 6 and a trial date of Jan. 9.


Albert Cleveland, who was also arrested during the raid, was not present at the arraignment.
