A total of 16 guns and drugs were confiscated in the arrest of Christopher W. Bounds, 35, Lind, last Wednesday afternoon, Aug. 15, at the top of the Lewiston grade. The arrest was conducted at about 4 p.m. by Quad Cities Drug Task Force members with the assistance of the Nez Perce County Sheriff’s office, according to a report from Whitman County Undersheriff Ron Rockness.

Nez Perce County’s K-9 dog alerted to the odor of narcotics and a search of the vehicle was conducted. Allegedly found in the vehicle were six semi-automatic rifles, two shotguns, eight pistols and two bullet proof vests. All of the weapons were reported to be loaded.

Drugs allegedly found in the vehicle were 1.5 pounds of heroin and 2.1 pounds of methamphetamine.

Bounds has previously faced charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and homicide by controlled substance.
