A 30-year-old Kodiak man was arrested on suspicion of drugs misconduct on Wednesday.

Jeremy Smith was arraigned Thursday and charged with two counts of fourth-degree drugs misconduct, one count of fifth-degree drug misconduct, one count of third-degree weapons misconduct and two counts of violating conditions of release for a misdemeanor.

The incident started when an Alaska State Trooper went to the house where Smith was living to deliver a search warrant for evidence associated with an assault.

While serving the warrant, the trooper saw a pistol wrapped in a bandana and stashed inside a motorcycle helmet, the report reads.

Trooper Boyd Branch then stopped the search and went to the courthouse to amend the search warrant to include the ability to look for firearms.

Branch went back to the home and continued to search, uncovering a toolbox that contained a plastic container with straws, a glass pipe and plastic bag with a white crystal substance, the report reads.

After obtaining another search warrant, Branch seized the plastic container and tested the substance in the bags, which proved to be methamphetamine.

Branch also found a scale and a container with 14 Oxycodone pills, one Clonazepam pill and an unidentifiable pill.

In his report, Branch wrote that Smith said someone was at the home earlier, and must have put the items in the toolbox. Smith also said he did not know the gun was in the house.
