POLICE BRIEFS 3/22/12
Road rage report leads to DUI arrest
Anchorage police said they arrested Devon Anglin, 21, of Wasilla at about 11:30 p.m. on March 9 after another driver reported a road-rage incident at the North Eagle River Access. Officers stopped Anglin at the Glenn Highway and Bragaw Street and arrested him for driving under the influence, police spokeswoman Marlene Lammers said. His estimated blood-alcohol levels were almost twice the legal limit, Lammers said. He was lodged at Anchorage Jail.
Drug calls center on cars
Anchorage police said they responded to two drug-related calls the week of March 5. On March 9, someone reported they thought someone “smoking dope” in a car parked at WalMart in Eagle River, police spokeswoman Marlene Lammers said. As they watched the vehicle leave, someone allegedly tossed a syringe and part of a soda can out the window, Lammers said.
On March 11, officers stopped a white GMC pickup for expired plates at Business Boulevard and the Old Glenn Highway, Lammers said. When the driver and passenger were contacted, officers observed “an immediate odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle,” she said. Both occupants denied there were drugs in the vehicle and refused to let police search it, Lammers said. Officers obtained a search warrant and impounded the vehicle. A case is pending.
Neighbor feud turns disgusting
A resident of Center Street filed a report with Anchorage police on March 8 stating she found feces on her vehicle. The victim said she’d been having issues with her neighbor and when she confronted him about the incident, he did not deny it, said police spokeswoman Marlene Lammers. The victim said she is afraid of her neighbor and only wanted the report documented should anything happen to her dog, Lammers said.
Charges are merely accusations; defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty at trial or until a plea of guilty is accepted by the courts.
