For the second time in as many months, Virgil Reins was allegedly caught trying to sell methamphetamine in Pierce County.
The Tacoma man is now being held in Pierce County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail. This is the 12th time hes been charged for drug or weapons violations, according to court records.
Reins pleaded not guilty Monday to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, second-degree possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen vehicle and possessing an explosive device.
The most recent charges stem from his arrest Thursday after an informant working for Lakewood police arranged to buy two pounds of meth from Reins for $13,000.
The deal went down in a storage business and Reins was taken into custody afterward.
Police then searched two homes Reins had keys for and allegedly found at least seven pounds of meth, two stolen Corvettes, a 12 gauge pump shotgun, military practice rocket with hollowed out grenades, ballistic armor, stun guns, ammunition, drug paraphernalia and a police scanner.
Prosecutors said more charges may be coming.
Those are piling on top of charges stemming from Reins arrest last month after a pursuit in Pierce County ended in his arrest. Sheriffs deputies in that incident said they discovered 3.5 pounds of meth and a stolen handgun in the car Reins was driving.
Reins most recently was sentenced to serve 100 months in prison for drug-related charges and was released in November 2011.
