A Leavenworth County judge sentenced a Bonner Springs man Friday to four years and four months in prison for illegally possessing drugs, guns and bombs.
Jacob Rettig, 26, came to authorities’ attention on July 31 when U.S. marshals came to his home looking for someone else. Marshals called in county deputies when they discovered Rettig was wanted on a state warrant.
During a search, authorities discovered marijuana, a variety of prescription drugs, five guns and four “homemade improvised explosive devices,” according to Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson.
Rettig later pleaded guilty to possession of oxycodone with intent to distribute, possession of explosives and criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
He also was sentenced Friday on an unrelated identity theft case, receiving an 18-month term to be served concurrently with his sentence in the gun and drug case.
