    I know some of the Mat-Su drug task force Troopers and itĎs very different in Alaska than most other states. What they tend to do with non violent dealers and pot growers is take everything of value, dope, cars. money, guns then hand them a summands/ticket and let them feed themselves until the guilty verdict. I donít think many skip but if they do the state has most of their valuables impounded as proceeds of a criminal enterprise, kind of like a bond I guess. I get auction flyers of that forfeit and unclaimed evidence getting sold off every now and then.

    Firearm theft is federal and I would guess there was a felon around also.Best make more gun laws for the honest folk.

    Iím guessing they couldnít make the theft case or didnít want to bather with putting together the theft case when they got them on enough drug stuff to send them way up the river. Better for Kodiak this way because they gave the gun back now rather than holding till after trial or whatever.


    Doesnít just having the gun at the drug business add ten years to it or something to the drug distribution felony?

    I wish I knew, and I've even asked the question before.

    BECAUSE, every time a drug bust is in the news, they seem to make a beeg deel about how many GUNS they confiscated.

    And, I'm thinkin,,,, Isn't it legal to own guns?

    Kodiak:
    I'm glad you got the gun back. That's a real blessing I'm sure.

    They didn't make any arrests at the time, but they will later. They'll hafta add up the charges.

    I have not been involved with the federal judicial system for more than 15 years now, but at that time the mandatory sentencing guidelines included an additional 60 months for the involvement (including simple possession) of a firearm with a narcotics complaint/warrant. It may have changed during the intervening years.

    Glad you got your rifle back kodiak. Reading the story, what a truly disgusting bunch of scum that stole your rifle. I hope you got a nice 55 grain ballistic tip that you can put to use. aim for the lower gut, the suffering is what you want to aim for. There's 7 billion people in the world.........

    Yeah, I think it is as Andy was saying, they are building a case, but those folks are pretty much pinned down.
    Interesting there's a kinda "Lowlife Trailer Court," just about two hundred yards down the street
    from the Spanking New Police Department Building here in Kodiak,...

    I'm pretty sure that was where the raid was pulled off.
    Makes you wonder about the mentality of folks doing stuff like importing Heroin, stashing stolen firearms, for over a year, just down the street(???)
    I would never have imagined it still hiding in someone's closet, and is why maybe all the stir I caused, may be why it didn't go anywhere ?

    Anyway, I haven't seen the rifle yet, hoping it is in good shape, they did say the softcase it was in is not still around, but the Leupold scope is,...so, I'm hoping it hasn't been tossed around much,...who knows
    I stopped down there to thank them, and talked a bit, it's going to be a week or so til they can turn it over to us.
    They seemed ecstatic with the amount of evidence they had to go through, and it was like they had finished out a long running investigation. So everybody down there were doing Some Smiling, and of course they like having a guy come in to benefit from the recovered firearms.
    Apparently there were several handguns also,..not sure how many, but they had been stealing guns for a while, from homes, etc.

    Interesting, that in hindsight, that was one of the main reasons I dug up the serial number and reported it,
    (I was really kind of hopeless about ever seeing it again, and the officer receiving the report was not too optimistic either),...
    but just the Federal Offense aspect of it all, was something I wanted to get out there,...just in case.

    I had a feeling, they were happy to see me and grateful for the reporting of the stolen rifle also, as it helps them make a stronger case for long sentencing,..something like that anyway,...

    It Is Good, to see people like that going down, that's for sure
