Authorities searched a storage facility Bacon was using and made an alarming discovery. According to the US Attorney's Office:

"Agents found 2 pounds of methamphetamine, a body armor plate carrier and plates, a velcro “police” patch for the plate carrier, several weapons including an AR-15 style rifle with a large capacity magazine, a plastic tub with more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, 5 pounds of C-4 plastic explosives, and handcuffs."

Bacon got 12 years for the meth charge, and will also spend an additional 12 months in prison for violations of release from a previous 2011 case.

US Attorney Vanessa R. Waldreff said:

“Mr. Bacon was a repeat offender who continued to distribute poison in our neighborhoods. He also had access to weapons and military-grade explosives that he could use to harm others."

The case was investigated by the DEA, ATF, Spokane Police, FBI, DEA Spokane and Couer d' Alene task forces.
