Felon with gun arrested

Bryan Paul Aho  20 YOA Richland Resident

Felon in possession of a firearm, assault on a police officer (assault 3rd), various narcotics charges, minor in possession of alcohol, and reckless endangerment.

On early Tuesday morning 9-18-12 at 0603 hours officers were dispatched to Columbia Point Marina for a weapons call. An anonymous reporting party called to report that a male wearing a bandana, flannel shirt, and jeans, had broken a vehicle’s windows and fired a gun at the park.

When officers arrived, they observed a male matching that description sitting in the front seat of a small blue passenger car. Due to the possibility of a weapon being involved the male he was called out of the car in a high risk format. The intoxicated male was uncooperative and resisted with officers, including spitting into the face of one of the officers.

During the males struggling with officer’s, .22 caliber ammunition fell from his pocket. Also on his person were narcotics and drug paraphernalia. The male identified himself as Bryan Aho a convicted felon. Inside the vehicle appeared a pistol underneath the seat Bryan was in.

The vehicle was impounded for a search warrant, where a revolver, .22 caliber ammunition matching the revolver, drug and drug paraphernalia was located and secured. Aho was booked into the Benton County Jail on a 72-hour probable cause affidavit of Assault 3rd degree on an officer, Felon being possession of a firearm, and possession of narcotics and drug paraphernalia. Witnesses later corroborated that Aho discharged the firearm in the park at a parked vehicle’s windows, causing the damage.
