Handguns, ammo found in parolee’s GJ home

A routine search of a parolee’s home in the 600 block of Americana Drive yielded two handguns and a bevy of ammunition, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

David Harley Parker, 28, was arrested on suspicion of illegally possessing two firearms and violating his parole after officers with the Grand Junction Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit searched his home Saturday evening.

During the routine search, according to Parker’s arrest affidavit, officers discovered a loaded, silver and black, semiautomatic 9mm handgun on top of several coats in his bedroom.

Officers also found “approximately 200 loose .22-caliber bullets” in a cloth Crown Royal whiskey bag, the affidavit said.

Officers also reported finding a semiautomatic .32-caliber pistol and a box full of bullets in a lockbox under Parker’s bed.

Parker, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison in a 2006 felony case in Delta County, was booked into Mesa County Jail.
