JPD investigates pair of burglaries Monday

Two Juneau residents were arested on charges stemming from two unrelated burglaries, according to releases from the Juneau Police Department


JPD arrested Raymund Seifert, 49, Sunday after receiving a report he possessed merchandise matching the description of items reported stolen Saturday from a business in the 100 block of Franklin Street.

When JPD stopped the vehicle Seifert was driving Sunday, they determined that not only did Seifert have some of the items reported stolen in his possession, but the vehicle itself was stolen.

Seifert was arrested and taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center. He faces one count of first-degree motor vehicle theft and one count of second-degree burglary, both class ‘C’ felonies. He’s also accused of violating the conditions of release, a misdemeanor.

At 12:45 a.m. Monday, JPD responded to an alarm at a business at 9100 Mendenhall Mall Road. While on scene, an officer contacted a man leaving on foot from the area, according to the release.

An investigation determined the man, Christopher Whitehead, was the suspect in the burglary. Whitehead, 20, was arrested for second-degree burglary and fourth-degree criminal mischief. He was taken to LCCC.
