Man arrested for burglary at Church of the Nazarene

A 29-year-old man was arrested Friday evening for burglary and criminal mischief after tripping the silent burglary alarm at the Church of the Nazarene, according to police.

Police said in a release they received a report that the alarm was triggered at about 9 p.m. Friday. Responding officers discovered a broken window on the front door of one of the church’s buildings located to the right of the main church, which is in the 3220 block of Mendenhall Loop Road.

Police said they discovered 29-year-old Duke Ramsdell still in the building. An investigation found Ramsdell had also allegedly vandalized the interior of the building, causing approximately $250 in damages, the release stated.

Ramsdell, who police said is not a Juneau resident, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree burglary, a felony, and fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor. He was jailed at Lemon Creek Correctional Center. Police said alcohol was involved.
