Homer Man Pleads Not Guilty in Mobile Meth Lab Case

A Homer man entered a not guilty plea yesterday during an alignment in the Kenai Court.

27-year-old Timothy Igou is charged with two counts of 2nd degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, as well as misconduct involving a controlled substance in the 4th degree for possession of methamphetamine, all of which are felony level charges.

As we reported earlier this year, on February 23rd at roughly 2:45pm, the Alaska State Troopers performed a traffic stop at the intersection of the Homer Bypass and Waddell Way for a traffic violation.

During the the course of the contact, Troopers found the driver of the vehicle, identified Igou, to be in possession of a personal use amount of methamphetamine.

State Troopers confirm that upon further investigation, Troopers found indications that Igou was operating a homemade, meth lab and producing methamphetamine in the vehicle.

A search warrant for the vehicle was obtained and investigators from the Alaska Bureau of Investigation’s Statewide Drug Enforcement Unit responded to the scene, and confirmed the presence of a meth lab in the vehicle.

Upon confirmation, the investigators were able to gather evidence and disassemble the lab. A Drug Enforcement Administration hazmat team responded to the Peninsula to collect and dispose of the hazardous materials from the lab.

Igou has another court date set for Thursday, July 18th.
