Police find $61,670 worth of heroin, meth in Petersburg drug bust
Police found firearms, ammunition and drugs with a street value of over $61,000 while executing search warrants on a home in Petersburg on Tuesday.
A post from the Petersburg Police Department on Facebook says authorities from multiple agencies served search warrants at a home on Mitkof Highway, where they found approximately 2.5 ounces of heroin and about 3.32 ounces of methamphetamine.
The street value of the drugs is estimated at $61,670. Authorities say they found the stash hidden inside a safe along with a Glock 20 10mm.
Carter Gueller, 30, was at the home when the warrants were served. Police say they found $2,177 on his person and $5,080 was found inside the home — all cash.
Police say they also found a scale with what appeared to be heroin residue on it in the safe, as well as a handwritten ledger with people's names and numbers.
Other firearms seized from the home were an AR-15 style rifle, a shotgun and a single-shot hunting rifle. Police also found ammunition and accessories.
Gueller has been arrested and booked into Petersburg Jail on charges of second- and third-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance as well as second-degree misconduct involving weapons. All of the charges are felonies.
Petersburg police had assistance from the Juneau Police Department, Alaska State Troopers, Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Postal Inspectors, NOAA and the Petersburg Harbor Department.
Gueller's arraignment was scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Petersburg District Court.
