4th USS Ronald Reagan Nuclear Electrician Pleads Guilty to LSD Posession

A nuclear electrician’s mate aboard the USS Ronald Reagan has become the fourth sailor to plead guilty on drug charges he possessed and distributed substances that included LSD on the aircraft carrier. Stars & Stripes reports Petty Officer 2nd Class Sean Gevero was sentenced to 90 days in military confinement and will be released from the Navy on bad conduct, in a ring said to have involved 15 Seventh Fleet sailors. In January, Petty Officer 3rd Class Philip Colegrove, who also worked in the ship’s nuclear department as an electrician, was sentenced to 10 months in military jail and a bad-conduct discharge for selling LSD and ecstasy onboard the aircraft carrier “several times” between January 2017 and February 2018. Two other men pleaded guilty to similar charges of possession with intent to distribute illegal drugs. All four agreed to testify against 11 men who bought the drugs in exchange for lesser jail terms. Ten of those implicated were handed nonjudicial punishments, according to Seventh Fleet spokesman Lt. Joe Keiley.
