CLEAR LAKE – A Clear Lake man who’s been caught with meth in the past and was then caught again and charged with a felony says he’s not guilty.

Cerro Gordo deputies conducted a traffic stop Saturday, October 29 just before 2 AM at 4th Avenue South and South Shore Drive. The driver allegedly had improper brake lights on the vehicle. During the traffic stop, the driver, 52-year-old Terry Lynn Hansen, was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. He was arrested on a charge third-offense illegal drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia and taken to the county jail. He was apparently booked and quickly released after posting $5,000 surety bond.

Hansen and his public defender entered a not-guilty plea at a December 6 arraignment hearing. He is scheduled for a February 14, 2017 jury trial and a January 30 pre-trial conference, where a plea deal could be struck.

Hansen was accused of a number of felonies connected to illegal drug possession with intent to deliver back in 2002 in Bremer county. He pled guilty to lesser crimes and drunk driving, instead, but still owes well over $1,500 to Iowa courts in that case.
