Trooper Report

Feb. 8

Alaska State Troopers at 7:12 p.m. received a report of a disturbance in Voznesenka. Troopers said a 40-year-old Voznesenka man threatened to kill an underage family member and burn down his house. While troopers were attempting to locate the man, trooper dispatch received a second complaint in the area that the same man entered a house uninvited and threatened to kill the occupants and burn down that house as well. Troopers arrested the man without incident. 

Troopers at 11:17 p.m. went to a car crash near Mile 155 Sterling Highway in Anchor Point. Troopers said a 33-year-old Homer woman driving a 2005 Dodge Durango lost control on a patch of ice. The car left the road and rolled into the ditch and onto private property. The woman wore her seat belt. Troopers said speed was a factor in the crash and that alcohol was not a factor.

Troopers at 8 a.m. received a report of a possible conditions of release violation in Ninilchik. The caller said a 33-year-old Ninilchik woman lived at a Ninilchik home in violation of her conditions of release. Troopers said the woman was at a residence belonging to a victim of an assault troopers alleged the woman had committed. The victim was present at the time Troopers arrived. The woman had conditions of release from the assault case which prohibited her from being in contact with the victim and being at the residence. Troopers found the woman hiding in a closet and arrested her.
