After a gunfire exchange in a Soldotna neighborhood in November, a Soldotna man has been arrested on multiple charges involving drugs and weapons.
Alaska State Troopers arrested Scott Hashemian of Soldotna, 32, on Dec. 27 while searching another house in Soldotna, according to a trooper dispatch. Hashemian was identified as a suspect in a late-night gunfire exchange in Soldotna’s Big Eddy neighborhood on Nov. 22. No injuries were reported, but the house was struck by gunfire, according to the trooper dispatch.
Troopers located Hashemian near a school in Soldotna on Dec. 14 and found he had multiple types of controlled substances and a .45 caliber handgun within 500 feet of a school building. The troopers then issued a $25,000 warrant for his arrest, according to the dispatch.
Troopers arrested him on one count of misconduct involving weapons in the first degree, three counts of misconduct involving weapons in the second degree, one count of misconduct involving weapons in the third degree, one count of misconduct involving weapons in the fifth degree, four counts of misconduct involving controlled substances in the second degree, five counts of misconduct involving controlled substances in the third degree, and four counts of misconduct involving controlled substances in the fourth degree, according to the dispatch.
Hashemian was convicted of felony theft in 2009, according to Courtview. Under Alaska law, it is illegal for a convicted felon to carry a firearm until he or she has had civil rights restored.
Hashemian is being held at Wildwood Pretrial Facility.
