Radio Facts: An Arkansas City radio station owner and his wife arrested last month for drug possession made their first appearance in district court this morning.
Marshall Ice, owner and general manager of KACY Radio, and his wife, Megan Ice, were arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to sell on Dec. 16.
They appeared today in Judge Jim Pringle's courtroom in Ark City.
Pringle scheduled a conference with attorneys for 10:;30 a.m., Feb. 5 to set up a preliminary hearing. He set the date for next month after defense attorney Rod Iverson asked for more time to examine paperwork on the case.
Iverson said after today's appearance that he couldn't comment further on the case at this time.
Exact charges against the couple were not read by the judge. But a court clerk said there were three counts: possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia, possession with intent to sell and no drug tax stamp.
On Dec. 16, several law enforcement agencies executed a search at Ice's residence in the 1900 block of North C Street. Their residence is near the Arkansas City Middle School.
The search was conducted by officers of the Cowley County Drug Task Force, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Arkansas City Police Department, Cowley County Sheriff's Department and the Kansas Highway Patrol.
Police said they found “marijuana and numerous items of drug paraphernalia.” The amount of marijuana was unclear. Police at the time said it was “about a pound.”
