Two Kodiak locals who had previously been charged in a March theft incident are facing new felony charges following a search warrant for a case from earlier this month, according to court documents. 

Christopher Peters, 35, is charged with 15 counts of violating conditions of release, misconduct involving a controlled substance in the third and fifth degrees, and misconduct involving weapons in the second, third and fourth degrees. 

Peters has been previously charged with a slew of other drug and theft violations. 

Illa Macinko, 24, is charged with misconduct involving a controlled substance in the fifth degree, misconduct involving weapons in the third degree, and two counts of violating conditions of release. 

With a warrant granted to police officers for a theft and forgery incident earlier this month, officers searched Peters’ residence on July 17, where they found numerous substances, drug paraphernalia and electronic devices.

In the bedroom Peters shares with Macinko, police found two loaded needles that later tested positive for methamphetamine, one in Peters’ nightstand and the other in Macinko’s nightstand, the court documents said. 

They seized $1,795 in cash and two digital scales that had a brown tar-like residue consistent with the appearance of heroin. One of the scales also had an opaque crystalline-like residue consistent with the appearance of methamphetamine. 

In the bedroom, officers also seized various guns, 19 electronic storage devices, a computer, drug paraphernalia, cell phones, brass knuckles and a security camera, among other items. 

Macinko and Peters said one of the guns, the brass knuckles and the controlled substances belonged to another man. The man they named to police had been recently arrested and is currently in Wasilla’s Goose Creek Correctional Facility.

The police affidavit reported that according to the Alaska Public Safety Information Network, Peters is on conditions of release for numerous charges, including two counts of theft in the second degree, several counts of misconduct involving controlled substances, two counts of violating conditions of release, burglary in the first degree and tampering with evidence. 

Macinko is on conditions of release for an incident in March in which she was charged with tampering with physical evidence. 

Peters and Macinko were arrested and transported to Kodiak Jail.
