Thefts, lost and found items:

Shortly before 1 p.m. Monday, a woman, 35, reported her 1997 Pontiac Sunfire rifled through at Chapel by the Lake, and a small amount of cash stolen when it was parked there Saturday night.

Shortly after 4 p.m. Monday, a citizen found a red 21-speed Thunder Mountain bicycle in the valley. The serial number and model are on file at the Juneau Police Department.

About 7:15 p.m. Monday, a woman, 36, reported the theft of a portable compact disc player and a plastic monthly bill organizer from her vehicle parked on Calhoun Avenue on March 14. The vehicle was unlocked. There were neither leads nor suspects.

Traffic stops:

At 11 p.m. Monday, a man, 39, was cited on Mendenhall Loop Road near McGinnis for driving while his license was canceled. He was released at the scene.

Hit-and-run incidents:

About 1:30 p.m. Monday, a woman, 41, reported her 2000 Jeep Cherokee hit-and-run while parked at Chapel by the Lake between noon and 1 p.m. The vehicle sustained damage to the passenger's front grill and side.


A Coast Guard Air Station Sitka helicopter crew rescued two stranded men whose boat was swamped by waves Saturday night near Barlow Cove. A woman reported to the Coast Guard in Juneau at noon Sunday that her husband and another man had intentionally beached their 26-foot vessel, the Wild Excursions. The men decided that returning to Juneau in 50-knot winds and eight-foot seas was too risky. The Jayhawk helicopter found the men at 7 p.m. Sunday and returned them to Juneau. Neither man suffered any injuries. There were no reports of fuel spillage from the vessel, which its owner intends to salvage.

On Sunday, a Juneau resident, 31, became stranded near the U.S. Forest Service's Berners Bay Cabin after waves swamped his 16-foot skiff. His sister reported him overdue about 10 a.m. Monday. A Coast Guard helicopter crew spotted the uninjured man along the shoreline shortly after noon Monday, and picked him up.
