Trooper Report

March 2

Alaska State Troopers received a report that a firearm was stolen from a Fritz Creek home. The victim said a Ruger LC9 9 mm handgun was taken sometime in August 2015 while he was away from his home. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-478-4258 (478-HALT).

Troopers at 5:47 p.m. contacted a 33-year-old Homer woman at an Anchor Point hotel. The woman was the third-party custodian for a 46-year-old Anchorage man. Troopers on Feb. 27 contacted the woman alone on a traffic stop. The man was supposed to be within her sight and sound. Troopers at the time were unaware of the man’s conditions of release involving the woman as a third-party custodian. When troopers again contacted the woman on March 2, they  found she was not with the man. Troopers arrested her for two counts of violating custodian’s duties. On March 3 during a Soldotna traffic stop they contacted the man and arrested him on new charges of providing false information, violating conditions of release, fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and fifth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance.

March 3

Troopers at 5:54 p.m. contacted a 55-year-old Ninilchik man and found he had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in courts. Troopers arrested the man.
