FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A former leader of a motorcycle gang has been sentenced on drug and gun charges in federal court.

Shon Gibson, 47, of Rome City was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court to 17 years in prison followed by 8 years of supervised release on charges of possessing with intent to distribute 5 grams or more of methamphetamine and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

It was December 2016 when police served a search warrant at a home at 865 Chambers Street in Rome City. There, federal authorities said they found “an ounce of 100% pure methamphetamine and over $32,000 in drug trafficking proceeds,” along with two AK-47 rifles and two inert military-grade hand grenades in an attic above a garage. One of the rifles was fully automatic and the other was a short-barreled rifle, authorities said. Another $8,000 was found in a safe inside the house.
