POLICE BRIEFS - 7/4/13
Unrelated burglaries reported on same day
Residents of two different Eagle River homes reported burglaries to the Anchorage Police Department June 20 — though they didn’t appear related.
At 7:25 a.m., a resident of Second Street told police that at some time in the preceding five days, someone pried open an upstairs window after climbing a ladder from a nearby storage shed and turning off power to the house at the circuit breaker, according to APD spokeswoman Dani Myren.
A firearm was taken as well as a small safe stored in a crawl space, Myren said. The safe held another handgun as well as some important paperwork and jewelry. The stolen items were valued at about $2,650. A case is pending.
At 2:25 p.m. that same day, a resident of a home on Home Place told police that some time that day someone got into the residence by cutting and removing a kitchen screen, Myren said. A wallet was stolen. The case remains under investigation.
Anchorage police said they arrested a 57-year-old Chugiak woman June 20 on charges of domestic violence assault after she struck a friend or family member. The woman was taken to Anchorage Jail without bail.
In an unrelated arrest June 25, police charged a 21-year-old Chugiak man with malicious destruction of property after he broke a chair during a fight with a friend or family member.
Anchorage police said they arrested Damon Lee Raynard, 44, of Anchorage after receiving a report of a reckless driver southbound on the Glenn Highway near the south Eagle River exit at 11 p.m. June 22. Raynard provided a breath-alcohol sample twice the legal limit, police spokeswoman Dani Myren said. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $2,500 bail.
Other DUI arrests, according to police:
Bradley Michael Hauser, 23, of Eagle River after an officer stopped him for a headlight out at 2:45 a.m. on June 23 at Centerfield Drive and the Old Glenn Highway. Hauser provided a breath-alcohol sample of more than twice the legal limit, Myren said. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $250 bail.
