State Trooper Report

Feb. 27

Alaska Wildlife Troopers cited a 24-year-old Homer man for failure to submit his 2013-14 permit hunt report to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

Wildlife Troopers cited a 31-year-old Homer man for obstructing or hindering lawful trapping, third-degree theft and fifth-degree criminal mischief. Troopers said that in January two trappers contacted them to report their traps were stolen on trap lines outside Anchor Point. Both trappers were properly licensed and trapping lawfully on state land. Troopers allege an investigation showed the man removed five traps in early January and brought them to his home and the next weekend went back to the area and set off and discarded another trap set by one of the trappers in the same location as where the earlier traps had been taken. 

Bureau of Highway Patrol Troopers at 9:41 p.m. stopped a 32-year-old Ninilchik man driving near Mile 109 Sterling Highway near Kasilof. Troopers said the man had a revoked license and a limitation on his license requiring him to have an ignition
interlock device on any car he drove. Troopers arrested him for driving while license revoked and driving in violation of license limitations.

Highway Patrol Troopers at 6:11 p.m. stopped a 33-year-old Homer man driving near Mile 95 Sterling Highway in Soldotna. Troopers allege the man possessed marijuana and that he destroyed some of it in an attempt to prevent troopers from recovering it. Troopers arrested the man for sixth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, marijuana, and tampering with physical evidence.

Troopers at 3:15 p.m. stopped a 24-year-old Homer woman driving in Homer on suspicion of speeding. A records check showed she had an active warrant for her arrest on six counts of second-degree theft. Troopers arrested her on the warrant.
