A Sitka grand jury indicted a man last Thursday on charges of misconduct involving weapons in the third degree. According to court documents, a search of his home also lead to the recovery of four improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, and drug paraphernalia.
44-year-old Jeremy Charles Beebe was found to be in possession of a concealable firearm after being convicted of multiple felonies in Sitka and Wrangell. That itself is a Class C felony.
Sitka police officers executed a search warrant against Beebe and his residence on October 19, according to a police statement provided to the court. They found a Smith and Wesson 44 Caliber revolver on a shelf by Beebe’s bed as well as multiple boxes of ammunition.
Once the IED devices were found and secured, Sitka Police notified the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Officers also found multiple prepackaged baggies of meth and heroin for distribution, along with other drug paraphernalia.
