Juneau police arrest three on burglary charges

The Juneau Police Department responded to a report of a burglary early Thursday morning at Mike’s Airport Express, located at 9190 Glacier Highway.

An eyewitness called JPD at 3:56 a.m. Thursday and said three males were involved and had run off with a bag full of items from the building in the direction of Madsen Apartments. Officers arrived on scene and discovered the building had been entered through a back door window.

During a search of the area the officers contacted three men matching the description given by the eyewitness.

Juneau residents William Boone, 19, Alexander Dornbirer, 18, and Raymond Webster, 18, were found to be in possession of items stolen from Mike’s Airport Express and detained.

The three were taken in for questioning and arrested for second-degree burglary and third-degree theft and were taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

At Juneau District Court Thursday, Boone was appointed representation from the Public Defender Agency. David Mallet will represent Dornbirer, the defendant’s mother said.

Webster will be appointed an attorney from the Office of Public Advocacy.

“Obviously they are all very young. ... With the exception of Mr. Webster there is no criminal history on any of them,” District Attorney Dave Brower said.

Webster has a prior conviction for criminal mischief involving illegally spray painting Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School, Brower said.

“The assessment of a high bail setting is probably less important than having a good third party custodian,” Judge Keith Levy said. He set bail at $250 dollars for Boone and Dornbirer and $500 for Webster with a court-approved third party custodian for each. A preliminary hearing was set for July 25 unless the defendants are indicted.
