Man gets 10-year prison sentence for meth, guns charges

A Port Orchard man, who worked for Kitsap County, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for meth and guns charges Feb. 7 in Kitsap County Superior Court.

Trevor James Joseph Hulley, 42, pleaded guilty two counts of possession of meth with intent to deliver, second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.

Public Communications Manager Doug Bear said Hulley, a mechanic, has worked in the Public Works department since November 2000. Bear said the county placed Hulley on administrative leave and Public Works will conduct a separate internal investigation. He was fired last February.

Warrants issued in the investigation of a stolen truck reported by Hulley, led Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office detectives to an “arsenal of guns” and drugs.

Hulley was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, possessing a stolen firearm and possession of meth with intent to manufacture or deliver on Feb. 4, 2013.

According to court documents, Hulley contacted deputies after someone took his Dodge truck on Jan. 29, 2013. He reported a vehicle dropped a male off at the road shed, located on Seabeck Highway, who then stole his truck and was in pursuit of the suspects.

Deputies stopped the vehicle with three occupants inside — all from Port Angeles — and later found the stolen truck.

Inside the truck, investigators discovered a stolen handgun that had been taken from a burglary in Seabeck in November 2012.

During the investigation, detectives discovered Hulley was alleged to have guns and may be trafficked firearms over state lines, the document stated. They also learned Hulley was convicted of violating a no-contact domestic violence order and not permitted to have guns.

During a search, investigators found about 20 firearms — mostly handguns — along with meth and paraphernalia at the home and an ounce of meth in the truck, documents stated.
