ANCHORAGE - Anchorage has cashed its first check for too-frequent police visits to the same address.
The city got a check for $11,500 after a lien was placed on Tammy Lynn Miller's home, which drew more than 45 police calls in a year. The home went into foreclosure, and the city got the money from the bank.
Sgt. Dennis Allen said police were called to the home in Airport Heights because of drugs, alcohol and other problems.
The money the city received was actually a reduced amount. The city initially sued for $23,000.
The law allows for eight free calls to a residence in a year. After that, police can charge $500 a visit.
