Repeat Oak Harbor drug offender faces 10-year sentence

The owner of an Ault Field Road tattoo business could face up to 10 years in prison on a drug charge with “aggravating circumstances,” according to court documents.

Prosecutors charged 47-year-old Kevin Rollyson in Island County Superior Court Oct. 3 with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.

The charge came with an “aggravating circumstance” because Rollyson’s offender score under the Adult Sentencing Guidelines is so high that his conviction would result in some current offenses going unpunished.

A criminal history increases an offender score; Rollyson has 10 felony convictions, according to court documents.

If convicted of the charge, Rollyson could face from five to 10 years in prison under the standard sentencing range.

Rollyson was released after posting $50,000 bail Oct. 8.

The Oak Harbor Police High Risk Entry Team served search warrants at the tattoo shop and Rollyson’s Oak Harbor residence Sept. 28.

The warrants were based on two controlled drug buys from Rollyson, according to a report by Detective Carl Seim, the department’s drug enforcement officer.

At the home, the detectives allegedly found a digital scale, a syringe loaded with suspected heroin, multiple plastic baggies containing suspected meth, a peanut butter jar filled with baggies of suspected marijuana, a syringe with clear liquid and a loaded .22 pistol on the side of a bed, according to Seim’s report.

Seim wrote that a child was living at the home.

At the tattoo business, the detectives found a magazine for a .22 handgun in a safe, the report states.
