~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ )


I Wendy Terry, being first duly sworn upon oath, hereby depose and states as follows:


1. I am a Special Agent (SA) with the Federal Bureau oflnvestigation (FBI), and have been
since June 2014. I am currently assigned to the Violent Crime Squad in the FBI
Anchorage Field Office. During my time with the FBI, I have lead and participated in
investigations involving violent crimes, threats, robbery, drugs, and child pornography. I
have also been an affiant on multiple federal search warrants seeking information relating
to investigations of threats, robbery, drugs, and child pornography offenses. Prior to June
2014 I was employed with the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department
(SCMPD) in Savannah, Georgia, as a Police Officer and Detective. As a Police Officer
and Detective, I was assigned to the Patrol Unit, Crime Suppression Unit, Property Crimes
Detective Unit, and Homicide Detective Unit. During these assignments I led and
participated in a large number of property crime investigations; led and participated in a
large number of drug-related arrests, including buy-bust operations, reverse buy

operations, and surveillance operations; and assisted in the preparation and execution of
numerous search warrants and arrest warrants. The execution of these search and arrest
warrants led to the seizure of firearms, ammunition, magazines, controlled substances,
packing implements, United States currency, vehicles, communication devices,
computers, receipts, ledger books, and other documents relating to the transportation,
ordering, purchase and distribution of controlled substances, and recovery of stolen
2. Pursuant to my background, training, and experience, as well as the training and experience
of other law enforcement personnel with whom I have consulted regarding this case,
investigation of this case has shown that:


3. This affidavit is made in support of a criminal complaint against and arrest warrant for

Eric James Hansen and Marshal Parke for the violation of Title 21 U.S.C. Sections 841,

846, 841(b)(l)(A) {Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, and

Conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine}

4. The information contained below is from my personal knowledge, from other law

enforcement agents and officers, or from specific sources as set forth. It does not include

all the information known to me as part of this investigation, but only information

sufficient to establish probable cause.


5. On 7/26/2018, agents and officers with the Joint Task Force Airport Interdiction Team

were notified by the Whittier Police Department that the agents of the Alaska Marine

Highway terminal in Whittier Alaska reported a suspicious passenger who disembarked

from the MN Kennicott, which had arrived from Bellingham, Washington after stopping

Case 3:18-cr-00098-SLG-DMS Document 1-1 Filed 07/27/18 Page 2 of 4

in several Southeast Alaska communities. The male, who was later identified as Eric

Hansen, was seen getting into the passenger seat of a silver/grey GMC Yukon bearing

Alaska license plate JLV948.

6. Whittier Police Department conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle. Marshal Parke was

driving the vehicle, and Eric Hansen was in the passenger seat. Another woman was in

the backseat. A scent-detection canine performed a sniff of the exterior of the Yukon

"indicating" to the odor of controlled substances emanating from the vehicle.

7. A search warrant was applied for and granted by the State of Alaska. Agents and officers

with the airport interdiction team executed the search of the vehicle. The search yielded

approximately 33 pounds of methamphetamine, which were located in a backpack that

Hansen had been seen wearing at the ferry terminal. There was approximately $8,000

cash US currency located in a black leather brief in the back of the vehicle. The briefcase

that contained a boarding pass for Marshal Parke, a scale with drug residue on it, other

items of drug paraphernalia (glass pipe with burnt edges). A small bag of white powdered

substance was found in between the driver seat where Marshal Parke was driving and the

ceriter console. The boarding pass was dated for 7/20/2018, departing Seattle Washington

and returning to Anchorage Alaska. Eric Hansen's travel records showed Hansen boarded

the MN Kennicott in Bellingham, Washington on 7/21/2018.

8. In my training and experience, and in speaking to other investigators, this amount of

methamphetamine has an approximate wholesale value of $225,000, and a street value

far exceeding that for sales of user quantities.

9. Based on the foregoing, I submit that there is probably cause to believe that Eric Hansen

and Marshal Parke possessed with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of

Case 3:18-cr-00098-SLG-DMS Document 1-1 Filed 07/27/18 Page 3 of 4

methamphetamine {Title 21, U.S.C. Section 841(a)(l), (b)(l)(A)}, and conspired to

distribute over 500 grams or more of methamphetamine {Title 21 U.S.C. Section 846,

841 (b)(1 )(A)}.

Further the Affiant sayeth not.

DATED at Anchorage, Alaska, this J- 7 day of J ,,,{ 3 '2018.
