Vehicle trespasser caught with pants down in a parked truck

A homeless man in search of a little bit of a privacy was caught with his pants down Tuesday attempting to achieve the height of personal gratification.

A startled 47-year-old man inadvertently interrupted the solitary romantic interlude taking place inside his blue Ford pickup truck, which was parked in the 100 block of Franklin Street at noon Tuesday, police said.

“The complainant approached his car, noticed somebody was in it, noticed what he was doing and called the police,” Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Erann Kalwara said in a phone interview Thursday.

“Nobody was interested in seeing what he was doing,” she added.

Responding police officers contacted the suspect, whom they identified as 53-year-old Milton George Kadake, and arrested him on suspicion of vehicle trespass and indecent exposure. Both of those are misdemeanor offenses.

Assistant district attorney Nicholas Polasky said Kadake changed his plea on Thursday and was sentenced to 90 days in jail, the maximum penalty for a class “B” misdemeanor.

Court records show this is the fifth time Kadake has been cited for criminal trespassing this year. Earlier this summer, he was caught catching some Z’s in a parked car near the Goldbelt Hotel. His loud snores alerted the 26-year-old owner of the car before she even saw him.

In that case, Kadake received a 30-day suspended jail sentence. Instead of serving time, he was required to be on unsupervised probation for 18 months. He was found guilty of breaking probation a month later and had to serve 10 days in jail, electronic records show.

Police told the Empire previously that Kadake was intoxicated when he broke into the woman’s car in late May. JPD spokeswoman Kalwara said he was intoxicated during the latest incident as well.

This Day in Juneau History: Feb. 23, 1987

On Feb. 23, 1987, Alaska House lawmakers voted 22-17 to transfer all of the $426 million from the Alaska budget reserve to the general fund to cover state bills. However, the clause that would have made the bill effective immediately after it was passed by both the Legislature and Gov. Steve Cowper was not passed, meaning that the bill will not go into effect until 90 days after Cowper’s signature and therefore not in time to stop a state cash flow crisis predicted to occur on March 9.
