EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A former Eugene investment adviser under investigation by the Securities Exchange Commission has pleaded not guilty to charges that he manufactured and sold methamphetamine and heroin.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/2bCV6rD ) Stephen Dauler Alison pleaded not guilty to the charges Wednesday.

Court records say Alison was arrested in March after a traffic stop in which police allegedly found a pound of methamphetamine in his vehicle. Documents say drug agents later seized additional evidence in the case from his home.

His attorney, John Kolego, maintains that police illegally searched Alison’s car without a warrant.

Kolego also says his client denies wrongdoing in a case related to his investment firm. The SEC has accused Alison of illegally steering his clients to mutual fund investments that generated large fees for him.
