Troopers at 9:09 p.m. made a traffic stop on a 47-year-old Anchorage man driving a Chevrolet Silverado on East End Road. A records check showed the man had a revoked driver’s license and was on probation for felony DUI and failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer. Troopers said the man drank and possessed alcohol in violation of his probation. Troopers arrested the man for driving while license revoked and violating conditions of probation.

Alaska Wildlife Troopers contacted a 34-year-old Kachemak Selo man trolling for salmon in Kachemak Bay near Pogibshi Point. Troopers issued him a citation for failure to have a sport fishing license.

Troopers at 8:26 a.m. went to a car crash near Mile 146.5 Sterling Highway near Anchor Pont. Troopers said a 61-year-old Soldotna man driving south in a Kenworth semi-tractor trailer truck hit a moose when it stepped into the road, killing the moose. The man was uninjured. The moose was donated to a local charity. The crash caused $5,000 in damage to the truck.

Troopers at 9:48 a.m. went to a report of a theft and criminal mischief at a My Drive home in Ninilchik. An investigation showed someone connected to the power of the unoccupied house. When the power came back on, it caused the well to pump water into the unheated house, freeze and burst the pipes.
