The former president of an Idaho motorcycle club chapter has been sentenced to almost six years in prison for possessing meth with an intent to distribute and possessing guns, according to U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson.
Ronald Eugene Bohm, 50, of California was originally arrested in the summer of 2015 after the Meridian Police Department responded to his Meridian home due to parking violations.
Officers made contact with Ronald’s wife, Constance, when they smelled marijuana from inside of the home.
Constance admitted to police that she had marijuana and Ronald arrived home shortly afterwards with several individuals associated with the Henchman motorcycle club.
A drug detection dog alerted police that Bohm’s saddle bag on his motorcycle likely had contraband inside resulting in a search. Marijuana and firearms were found within the saddle bag and police proceeded to search the Bohms’ home after obtaining a warrant.
Police found 63 grams of meth and 176.2 grams of marijuana inside of the home with scales and numerous firearms.
Two AR-15 semiautomatic rifles, five AR-15 receivers, a .22 caliber rifle with a shortened barrel and a 7.62X54 millimeter rifle with a shortened rifle were found inside of the home. None of the rifles had a make, model, or serial numbers on them.
Bohm was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 11th, 2015 and pleaded guilty on December 2nd, 2015.
After Bohm’s release from prison, the judge ordered him to not have any contact with individuals identified by local law enforcement agencies as documented gang members nor can he possess any items representing or showing any affiliation with gangs.
His wife, Constance, is scheduled for sentencing on March 29th, 2016.
