WALLA WALLA — A report of stolen computer led law officers to a home where guns, drugs and drug paraphernalia were also found.
The Walla Walla County Sheriff’s Office arrested Tigger W. Janson, 25, Friday night following reports that a stolen computer had been located at his residence.
According to documents presented in court this morning, deputies received a report that a stolen computer had been “pinged” at a house on Boyer Avenue. Deputies later identified Janson as a resident of 1254 Boyer Avenue, and obtained a search warrant for the computer.
While deputies were waiting for the warrant to arrive, an X-box 360 was turned over to police. After obtaining the search warrant, police noticed guns and drug paraphernalia in the basement residence.
Deputies obtained a second warrant, according to the court documents, and seized a sawed-off shotgun and a rifle, along with various drug paraphernalia, including scales and a notebooks relating to the sale of drugs.
Court documents also indicate deputies located several improvised explosive devices at the residence.
Janson is being held at the Walla Walla County Jail on investigation of two counts of second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a legend drug with intent to sell without a prescription, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bail was set at $40,000.
The Walla Walla County's Sheriff's Office declined to comment on the case.
