Driving while intoxicated:

After receiving numerous reports about 8 p.m. Friday of a driver swerving on Egan Drive outbound, police pulled over and arrested Robert T. Mosher, 38, for driving while intoxicated and for driving with a blood-alcohol level over 0.10 percent. He was lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

James I. Millican, 52, was arrested about 3:30 a.m. Saturday at the Mendenhall Glacier parking lot for driving while intoxicated. He was additionally charged with refusal to take a breath test. He was lodged at state prison.

Thefts, lost/found items:

A man, 46, reported about 8 a.m. Friday that his green polar fleece vest was stolen Thursday evening while he was attending the Folk Festival at Centennial Hall. His wallet was in the pocket of the vest. There were no leads or suspects.

A woman, 32, reported about noon Saturday that she lost a camera at Cope Park on Friday about 3 p.m. The camera is a black, 35mm Rebel model; it was not in a case but did have a black shoulder strap and a large lens attached.

Vandalism:

Juneau Parks and Recreation reported Thursday that unknown persons had painted the 4-foot-high boulder at the entrance to Cope Park with gold paint. They hoped to borrow pressure-washing equipment to remove the paint at minimal expense to taxpayers. Officials said the boulder, to which a memorial plaque is attached, is an ongoing target for graffiti, which can be difficult to remove from rock.
