A Kasilof man was found with $38,000 worth of heroin in his home last Friday.

Paul Robson, 33, was arrested for second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, two counts of fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and violating conditions of release.

Multiple agencies including Alaska State Troopers, state Drug Enforcement Unit and the Kenai Police Department served a search warrant to Robson’s house on Oct. 10.

The investigation found Robson in possession of 95.7 grams of heroin and 11.5 grams of methamphetamines. The street value of the meth is estimated at $3,500. Police also recovered a stolen rifle and a snowmachine.

Robson also faces 10 felony drug charges in a separate case dating back to a May 2013 arrest. Trial call in that case is scheduled for the week of Dec. 10 before Superior Judge Carl Bauman.

Robson is currently jailed at Wildwood Pretrial Facility. His next court date is scheduled Oct. 21 in Kenai District Court.
