Indictment handed down in heroin smuggling

Staff report
Homer Tribune
A Homer couple has been indicted on  promoting contraband in the first degree; second degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and conspiracy – second degree misconduct involving a controlled substance.  All class C felonies.
Ashley Rose Dour, 26, was taken into custody after allegedly trying to smuggle heroin to Patrick J. Delumeau, 20, at the Homer jail.
On Oct. 26, Dour came to the Homer jail to bring Patrick Delumeau some clothing, according to a police affidavit. Several days earlier police had monitored, on a jail line, the two discussing concealing heroin in a pair of sweatpants. Once Dour arrived, a pair of white shorts were taken from her and inspected by officers and jail staff. Inside the elastic waist of the shorts officers discovered a foil packet concealed within the lining of the waistband.  Inside the foil was a black, tarry substance with the odor and texture of heroin.  A substance field tested positive for the presence of heroin.
Dour denied knowledge of the drug being in the shorts and said she just grabbed them off her bed at home.
Dour is the cousin of Derek Remington Dour who was arrested in accepting stolen property in the Tech Connect burglary. Delumeau is also implicated in that case.
