JPD looking for leads on a recent burglary

The Juneau Police Department’s Crime of the Week is in reference to a burglary.

JPD Sgt. Paul Hatch said on Feb. 4 around 8 p.m., a resident in the 8500 block of Marilyn Avenue called JPD to report she had just arrived home and found a burglar in her house. Startled, once the intruder realized she was in the home, he ran through the house and out a door. He fled the area by foot, and could not be located.

Police describe the suspect as being male, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and wearing a light-colored top. The homeowner said he attempted to take jewelry and electronics.

Anyone with information regarding this or any other crime is encouraged to log onto the Juneau Crime Line at and report their tip, or to call JPD at 586-0600.

Tipsters are guaranteed anonymity and can be rewarded.
