A woman from Gore is facing a felony charge of possession of a firearm after former felony conviction, records show.
Mandy Gail Bahe, also known as James, 37, faces up to 10 years in prison on the weapons charge. She was also charged with unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.
On July 8, Gore and Webbers Falls police officers executed a search warrant at 1102 Main St., Apartment 12A, in Gore. When law enforcement arrived, they were met by James Allen outside the residence. Allen is the live-in boyfriend of Bahe.
The officers told Allen they were there to search the residence for weapons because of his girlfriend’s previous felony convictions. Allen told them Bahe was inside the home and that he didn’t know she had previous convictions.
Bahe answered the door and told police she had never been in trouble. An officer then asked about her previous name (Mandy James) and informed her that she had felony warrants out of Muskogee County, a misdemeanor warrant from Sequoyah County and a misdemeanor warrant from McIntosh County. Bahe said her previous charges had been taken care of and said she did not understand why warrants would be issued.
When police entered the residence, they discovered a black AR-15 assault rifle, a semi-automatic 450-cal. in the bedroom. In another bedroom they located a Ruger .22-caliber rifle. Officers also located a broken glass pipe with a white powdery substance inside it, a used syringe, a grinder and several plastic containers commonly used by medical marijuana dispensaries to package marijuana.
Bahe was arrested and transported to the Sequoyah County Jail.
