Man enters home, takes nothing, leaves, gets citation
Anchorage police said they cited and released Thaddeus Tikiun, 34, of Eagle River for unauthorized entry on Jan. 29 after receiving a report of a burglary around 1 a.m. A resident of Aurora Street told dispatchers she woke up and found a strange man in her house, according to a police report. The man “left when confronted and nothing appeared to be missing, the report stated. The woman told dispatchers she watched the man return to a house behind hers. Officers contacted Tikiun at the home on Borealis Street and he admitted to entering the home.
Asked why more serious charges weren't filed, police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said Tikiun told police he was drunk — so drunk "he thought someone in the house needed help."
