Ronald Eugene Bohm, 50, of California was sentenced at Boise's federal courthouse to 70 months in prison for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possessing a machine gun, Idaho U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced Friday.
Bohm, a former Meridian resident, was indicted by a federal grand jury in August and entered guilty pleas in December.
Meridian police responded to Bohm's residence in July 2015 in response to complaints about parking violations, according to court records. Officers contacted Bohm’s wife and noticed the smell of marijuana from the house, at which time Bohm and several other motorcycle club members arrived, police said. A drug dog alerted on Bohm's motorcycle saddle bag, and officers found marijuana and firearms in the bag, according to court documents. Inside the home, officers found about 63 grams of meth and 176 grams of marijuana.
Bohm's wife, Constance, is a co-defendant and is scheduled for sentencing March 29.
