POLICE BRIEFS - 4/4/13
Weird 911 calls draw attention to drugs
A series of 911 hang-up calls and invitations to come over led Anchorage police to an Eagle River Road home late at night on March 22.
Officers who arrived at the home where someone had called emergency dispatch saying things like “Hey, come see me,” found several men outside, police spokeswoman Dani Myren said. Inside they discovered several more men, including Joshua Daniel Almeda, 21, of Anchorage, who was asleep in a bedroom, Myren said. Officers found cocaine on a nearby nightstand, she said. They arrested Almeda on charges of fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $750 bail.
Domestic violence reports
Anchorage police said they arrested a 28-year-old Chugiak man on March 20 for assault and family violence after he assaulted a friend or family member. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $250 bail.
In another, unrelated domestic-violence arrest on March 26, police said they issued a felony arrest warrant for a 43-year-old Eagle River man after he got involved in a physical altercation with a family member.
Anchorage police said they arrested Kirk Leonard Jacobsen, 47, of Palmer for driving under the influence and sixth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance after he went off the road at Birchwood Spur Road around 2:30 a.m. on March 23. Jacobsen provided a breath-alcohol sample just under one and half times the legal limit. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $250 bail.
Other DUI arrests, according to police:
Michael Edward Johnson, 61, of Eagle River after police responded to a medic assist at his Terrace Lane residence at 8:35 p.m. on March 23. Johnson must have driven home and tried to get into his residence, where medics located him lying on the floor at the bottom of stairs in an arctic entry leading to his apartment, police spokeswoman Dani Myren said. Johnson provided a breath-alcohol sample of nearly three times the legal limit. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $500 bail.
Allen Curtis Wayne Dock, 41, of Bethel after police responded to a report of a reckless driver on the Glenn Highway just after 8 p.m. on March 26. Dock provided a breath-alcohol sample of twice the legal limit. He was taken to Anchorage Jail; a bail amount was not available.
