POLICE BRIEFS - 9/26/13
Fugitive arrested in Peters Creek
U.S. Marshals arrested an Alaska resident wanted on an outstanding federal warrant Friday, Sept. 20 in Peters Creek.
Max Raymond Jewett, 36, was federally indicted for charges of drug trafficking conspiracy resulting in death and serious bodily injury and for distribution of heroin resulting in serious bodily injury and death.
Jewett and Sean Michael Warner allegedly distributed controlled substances that resulted in the death of a 14-year-old girl Dec. 23, 2011, according to a press release issued by U.S. Marshals on Monday, Sept. 23.
The Alaska Fugitive Task Force apprehended Jewett, who had been on the run since being indicted, late Friday.
JBER soldier charged with multiple sexual assaults at gunpoint
Anchorage Police arrested and charged a 25-year-old Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson soldier for multiple counts of sexual assault and assault with a weapon.
APD charged Tony Bullock Jr. with five counts of first-degree sexual assault, one count of first-degree attempted sexual assault, two counts of third-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree assault. The charges stem from three separate incidents.
The first occurred July 16 at 4:20 a.m. A young woman reported being abducted at gunpoint in Mountain View and forced into an alley where the suspect “forced multiple sex events” on her, according to APD.
On July 17, a female reported being abducted at gunpoint at 6:30 p.m. on Bragaw Street. The suspect took her to a secluded area behind a building and “forced multiple sex acts” on her, APD said.
Both women provided composite drawings that were “extremely similar,” APD said. On July 20, police located a person matching the description in these cases. The man was following a lone woman on foot in Mountain View at 3 a.m. “under suspicious conditions.”
The person of interest was identified as Bullock, APD said.
On Aug. 11, a female reported a black male attempted to rape her at 4:30 a.m. in Mountain View. The woman provided the license plate of the suspect’s car, and APD said it belonged to Bullock.
Rash of thefts
A woman set her camera down in the Eagle River Walmart and walked away. When she returned, it was gone. The camera, valued at $250, was taken sometime between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 6, APD spokesperson Dani Myren said.
A hubcap and lug nuts from one tire, valued at $50, and a camera worth $400 was stolen from a parked vehicle on Norton Court in Chugiak sometime between Aug. 31 and Sept. 12, Myren said.
A pair of binoculars was reported stolen from a vehicle on Wildwood Street in Eagle River on Sept. 13.
A woman reported “a large amount of money” was stolen from her vehicle in the Eagle River Fred Meyer parking lot Sept. 13. She went into the store around 6 p.m., Myren said, and returned 45 minutes later to discover an envelope containing the money was gone.
Boy caught with stolen items
A 13-year-old boy was arrested and charged with four counts of theft and two counts of criminal mischief after allegedly breaking into several vehicles between Meadow Creek Drive and Old Eagle River Road on Sept. 13.
APD responded to a report of three suspects tampering with vehicles around 3:51 a.m. Three juveniles ran behind the Eagle River Shopping Center when police attempted to contact them.
APD was able to catch one of the kids, who had several stolen items in his possession including sunglasses, credit cards and a driver’s license, Myren said. He was released to his parents with a directive to call McLaughlin Youth Center.
Chugiak woman charged with DUI
Chugiak’s Amanda Sue Fannin, 29, was charged with reckless endangerment and driving while intoxicated Sept. 13. Myren said APD received reports of a possible drunk driver headed northbound on the Glenn Highway who had forced other vehicles off the road. Police pulled Fannin over at 3:41 p.m. in the parking lot of Birchwood ABC Elementary.
Her breath sample didn’t register, Myren said, but Fannin failed a field sobriety test and was taken to Anchorage Jail with bail set at $500.
Broken down vehicle is stolen
A Wasilla man’s vehicle broke down near Peters Creek on Sept. 8, and it was gone when he went back for it four days later.
The man left his 1991 brown Chrysler Imperial near the Peters Creek exit on the Glenn Highway. As of Friday, Sept. 20, the car was still listed as stolen, Myren said, as APD could not confirm it had been towed.
The theft occurred sometime between Sept. 8 and Sept. 12.
ER woman found with meth, child
Eagle River’s Sheila Johnson, 33, was charged with third-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance and second-degree endangering the welfare of a minor after police found her under the influence of methamphetamine with an 8-year-old present Sept. 16, Myren said. APD was dispatched to the residence on Echo Street for a disturbance call.
Missing license plate leads to drug charge
Anchorage’s James Everett Novcaski, 20, was charged with sixth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance after an officer noticed a smell of marijuana coming from the car he was riding in.
The vehicle Novcaski was a passenger in was pulled over near North Eagle River Access Road because it didn’t have a front license plate, Myren said.
Novcaski was released of his own recognizance from the scene and the driver was issued a citation, she said.
Dirt bike, laptop stolen
A dirt bike and miscellaneous items, including a laptop, were stolen from an unoccupied home on the 17000 block of South Birchwood Loop between Sept. 14-15, Myren said.
Boy caught stealing Playstation
A 13-year-old boy was arrested after a neighbor saw him going in and out of a back window of a residence on Spring Brook Drive in Eagle River on Sept. 18. The Playstation game system he stole was recovered, Myren said, and the juvenile was released to his parents with a directive to call McLaughlin Youth Center.
