A jury trial has been set for a Blair man facing gun, drug and theft charges in Washington County District Court.

Michael R. Boles, 43, is charged with possession of a stolen firearm, a Class 2A felony; possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine, a Class 4 felony; and theft by receiving stolen property, a Class 2 misdemeanor.

On Tuesday, Judge John E. Samson set the two-day trial to begin 9 a.m. Sept. 4. A pretrial hearing is set for Aug. 6.

Boles, who waived his right to speedy trial, was arrested in October after sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant at a home in the 4600 block of Pioneer Road.

During the search, deputies found several small bags containing white crystal powder, which tested positive for meth, in bedrooms belong to Michael and his brother, David.

In Michaels room, deputies also found a revolver that was reported stolen in Sioux City, Iowa.
