  • A Nebraska City man arrested Thursday evening on gun, theft and drug charges told an Otoe County Judge this morning that he doesn't know the "deleted" got into his house.
    Judge Jeffrey Funke told 29-year-old Roy Chase not to use profanity in the courtroom and not to discuss the facts of the case.
    The judge  earlier appointed John Voelker as a public defender in the case and had asked Chase if he had anything to say about setting of a bond.
    Deputy Otoe County Attorney Tim Noerrlinger asked the judge for a $10,000 bond provision. Prosecutors say Chase is the lone occupant of the house at 513 N. 11th St.
    Chase is charged with a felon in possession of a .357 revolver and a 9mm handgun, possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen scratch-off lottery tickets and possession of marijuana.
    Noerrlinger said the basis for the felony charge of possession of a firearm by a felon, comes from a conviction for possession of controlled substance in Fremont County, Iowa.
    Police Sgt. Dana Schebaum told the court that she investigated a burglary at Douglas Tire July 5 and received a search warrant for Chase's house.
    She said items stolen from Douglas Tire were found in the house, as well as firearms and controlled substances.
    A teen-aged juvenile was also taken into custody following the execution of the search warrant.  Three other individuals were questioned and released.
