March 15

At 6:14 p.m., Alaska State Troopers contacted a 28-year-old Homer man and charged him with third-degree forgery and tampering with physical evidence. He was charged after he submitted an altered vehicle insurance policy in an attempt to get a traffic citation dismissed. An investigation showed the man did not have vehicle insurance when he was stopped and cited and forged the dates on a subsequent insurance policy to make it look like he had insurance at the time of the traffic stop. He was given a summons to appear in court and released.
