Man sentenced for destruction within Glacier Bay National Park

Posted: September 19, 2011 - 5:58pm

Arizona resident Andrew R. Varni, 52, of Phoenix was sentenced by U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie Longenbaugh on Sept. 15 in Juneau for destruction of natural resources.

Varni was sentenced to pay a fine of $1,685 for his conviction on one count of destruction of natural resources on National Park Service land.

According to information presented to the court by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack S. Schmidt, Varni is permitted by the National Park Service to operate a seasonal fish camp in Dry Bay within the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.

On Aug. 24, 2010, a National Park Service Ranger observed that Varni had cut down 21 large trees and an additional 100 smaller trees on park land near his fish camp. Varni did not have a permit and was not authorized to cut these trees on park lands.
