Troopers make warrant arrest in Ketchikan

Troopers also seize marijuana in unrelated case

Alaska State Troopers in Ketchikan made a warrant arrest on Tuesday, according to a dispatch.

At 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, troopers responded to a residence in Saxman for a report of a person who had a warrant out for her arrest.

Troopers contacted Rachael L. Demmert, 33, at the residence and found she had two outstanding warrants that totaled $750, the dispatch states.

One warrant was for failure to appear and one was for a petition to revoke probation by Demmert’s probation officer.

Demmert was arrested and taken to Ketchikan Correctional Center without incident.

In an unrelated case, Troopers in Ketchikan say they also seized marijuana from a 39-year-old driver during a traffic stop.

According to a dispatch, troopers stopped a red Blazer after it failed to use a turn signal at about 9:53 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Totem Row and Killer Whale Avenue.

An investigation revealed the driver, a resident of Saxman whose name was not given, was in possession of marijuana, according to the dispatch.

No drug misconduct charges were filed as of yet, and the investigation is ongoing. The man was released from the scene, only cited for the traffic violation, the dispatch states.
