Troopers at 3:19 p.m. located a suspi- cious vehicle on Lyric Circle in Anchor Point after receiving a tip that the occupants used narcotics. Troopers identified the driver as a 20-year-old Homer man and his passenger as 32-year-old Homer man. Troopers said the passenger was on conditions of release from a prior felony arrest and had a hand- gun. A records check showed the 32-year- old passenger is a convicted felon and prohibited from possessing a concealable handgun. Troopers arrested the passenger

for violating conditions of release and third- degree weapons misconduct. Troopers said the driver, the 20-year-old man, possessed heroin on his person and in plain view. The driver also was the court appointed guard- ian for the passenger. Troopers arrested the 20-year-old man for violating third-party custodian duties and for four-degree mis- conduct involving a controlled substance, heroin.
