YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — A pair of USS Ronald Reagan sailors is facing charges that include the possession and distribution of a controlled substance, according to criminal charge sheets filed Aug. 30 and a Navy official.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Andrew Miller, a machinist’s mate, is accused of using, possessing and distributing LSD from January to February 2018, according to his charge sheet. Petty Officer 2nd Class Sean Gevero, an electrician’s mate, is accused of distributing LSD and possessing anabolic steroids in February, his charge sheet stated.

Alongside the pair, who are now facing courts-martial, at least three other sailors attached to the aircraft carrier could be charged with using an illegal drug, according to a statement emailed to Stars and Stripes on Monday by Navy Lt. Joseph Keiley, a 7th Fleet spokesman.

“Naval Criminal Investigative Service investigations are complete regarding U.S. Sailors involved in drug distribution,” he said. “Two cases are pending Special Courts-Martial, two cases are pending Article 32 Preliminary Hearings, and one case went to an Article 32 hearing.”
