Alaska State Troopers at about 11 a.m. arrested a 17-year-old juvenile following an investigation into an Oct. 18 burglary at a Deep Creek Road home in Ninilchik. Troopers recovered an SKS rifle and a hunting bow which had been stolen. The juvenile was taken to the Kenai Youth Facility and charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree theft of a firearm and second-degree theft.

Troopers at 5:35 p.m. received a report of a two-car crash near Mile 145 Sterling Highway in Happy Valley. Troopers and the Bureau of Highway Patrol responded. Troopers said a 29-year-old Homer woman driving a Subaru sedan south lost control on icy roads and crossed the centerline into the northbound lane. She was the only person in the Subaru. A Kia driven by a 24-year-old Homer woman hit the Subaru on the passenger side. Anchor Point, Ninilchik and Homer medics responded. The 29-year-old Homer woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Three adults and three children in the Kia were taken to South Peninsula Hospital with injuries. Two children in the Kia had life threatening injuries and were flown to an Anchorage hospital. Everyone involved except one child were properly restrained. Next of kin was notified.

Troopers on patrol near Mile 168 Sterling Highway in Homer saw skid marks showing a vehicle had crossed the centerline and gone off the road. Troopers found a blue Dodge Charger that had rolled in the ditch and a 36-year-old Anchor Point man in the driver’s seat. The man wore his seatbelt and did not suffer any injuries. Troopers cited him for failure to show proof of insurance.

Alaska Wildlife Troopers cited a 51-year-old Ninilchik man for several big-game hunting violations. Troopers alleged the man took a sublegal bull in September, transported the meat and antlers to his home, and failed to have the antlers sealed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game or Wildlife Troopers within 10 days. Troopers said the man also falsely claimed 50 years of Alaska residency when he purchased an out-of-state resident license within 12 months of the Alaska license application.
