KETCHIKAN — The former owner of a Ketchikan party supply business will serve nine years in prison on drug and weapons charges.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports 53-year-old David Bach was sentenced Thursday.

In August 2012, Ketchikan police seized 3 pounds of marijuana, 25 grams of methamphetamine and five handguns at his apartment. They later found another 24 pounds of marijuana stored at another apartment he owned.

District Attorney Steven West says Bach was an “extremely large drug dealer” for Southeast. He says Ketchikan is a small drug market with a large profit margin since there is a substantial mark-up for drugs.

Bach’s attorney, Michael Smith of Anchorage, says Bach wasn’t a typical drug dealer, and will return to Ketchikan after his prison sentence to seek gainful employment.
