Comments Off on Abriana Anastasia Marie Kukuk, 18, of Hamilton, charged with possession of Methamphetamine, heroin

An 18-year-old Hamilton woman has been charged with possession of heroin and methamphetamine after allegedly being caught up in what’s been called the largest heroin bust in Ravalli County’s history.

Abriana Anastasia Marie Kukuk appeared this week before Ravalli County Justice Jennifer Ray on two felony counts of criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

Kukuk allegedly purchased the drugs from one of three people arrested last Halloween after law enforcement officers found nearly a half pound of heroin and methamphetamine in their vehicle.

Deputy County Attorney Thorin Geist told a judge in November the three appeared to be on a test run to see if they could open up a new market for the drugs.

In that case, Marlen Revelo, 47, and Mason Gregory Skerbeck, 23, both of Washington State, and Crystal Lee Griffin, 21, of Stevensville were arrested on Halloween at gunpoint.

A search of the car they were driving found 257.4 grams of heroin, 231.7 grams of methamphetamine, 16 Hydrocodone pills, 14 films of Suboxone and one Fetanyl patch, according to an affidavit. Officers also found a loaded .380 Ruger pistol, $1,730 in cash and other items.

During a subsequent interview, Revelo said she and Skerbeck had met Griffin in Missoula, where she had brokered a drug deal, charging documents said.

On Nov. 18, Griffin waived her right to remain silent and during an interview said she had sold methamphetamine and heroin to Kukuk and another man.

Ray set bail for Kukuk at $25,000.
