Fire Fighter motorcycle stolen in Chugiak
A limited-edition Harley Davidson motorcycle designed for members of law-enforcement was among the items reported stolen from a residence on Homestead Road in Chugiak on July 26, Anchorage police said.
The homeowner told police that the 2003 Harley Davidson Fire Fighter Special Edition, as well as firearms and other items, were stolen during a 10-day period, police spokeswoman Dani Myren said. The front door of the home was forced open, Myren said. An investigation continues.
In an unrelated burglary on July 30, a Chugiak resident told police someone entered their Old Glenn Highway home through an open window and stole items including a gaming unit, electronics, clothing, groceries – and a suitcase to carry it all out, Myren said. The items were valued at more than $2,700.
Anchorage police said they arrested Gerald Eugene Montgomery, 27, of Anchorage for driving under the influence after an officer stopped him for speeding at 3:30 a.m. on July 27 on the Glenn Highway near Mirror Lake. Montgomery provided a breath-alcohol sample of just under twice the legal limit, police said. He was also cited for speeding and driving without a valid license and taken to Anchorage Jail on $250 bail.
In an unrelated DUI arrest on July 28, police said they arrested Jessica Mae Martinez, 33, of Anchorage after receiving multiple calls about a dark blue Dodge Ram pickup swerving all over the Glenn Highway in the Chugiak area just before 5 p.m. Martinez provided a breath-alcohol sample of just over twice the legal limit. She was taken to Anchorage Jail on $250 bail.
