Driving while intoxicated:

Shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday, police conducted a traffic stop on Egan Drive and arrested John Earl Monahan for driving while intoxicated and for driving with a blood-alcohol level over 0.10 percent. Monahan (no age given) was lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center. The vehicle was released to a friend at the scene.

Thefts, lost/found items:

A man, 46, reported shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday that his daughter's cell phone was stolen last week at Juneau-Douglas High School.

A woman, 47, reported about 8 a.m. Wednesday that her red Nokia cell phone was missing. She believes she may have lost the phone during a ferry trip to Haines.

A man reported shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday that $75 had been stolen while he was taking a nap on his boat in Harris Harbor. He named a suspect.

About 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, a key ring found on Thane Road was turned in to the police station. The ring held two keys and multiple fobs. A wallet containing identification was also turned in. Attempts to contact the owner, a woman, 44, were unsuccessful.

Hit-and-runs:

About 1:15 p.m. Wednesday, a girl, 19, reported that a man, 43, had observed a man, 37, driving a taxi, hit a parked pickup on People's Wharf and leave the area. Police located the driver of the Toyota pickup and the taxi driver. They agreed to handle the damages civilly.

A woman, 34, reported about 7 p.m. that her vehicle was the victim of a hit-and-run while parked in the upper lot at the University of Alaska Southeast. The vehicle sustained about $545 in damage.

Animal encounters:

Shortly after 6 a.m. today, a black bear wandered into town in the vicinity of the Goldbelt Hotel, Gold Creek and the Gold Lodge Apartments. It had been wounded or had injured a right paw, police said. The bear, spooked by commuters and pedestrians, climbed a tree, where it drew even bigger crowds. Police were concerned the bear would be stressed and become unpredictable, so, about 8 a.m., they summoned biologist Neil Barton of Fish and Game to dart the bear with a tranquilizer and remove it to a safe location.

Warrant arrests:

About 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, officers found a man (no age given) outside a lounge on Front Street and placed him under arrest for an outstanding Alaska State Trooper warrant for failure to appear at a status hearing. He was lodged at state prison.

About 5:30 a.m. today, police arrested a man, 22, on Great Western Avenue on two outstanding JPD warrants relating to noncompliance with conditions of his probation. He was lodged at state prison.

Fires:

An alarm summoned firefighters to an apartment building on Distin Avenue at 1:28 a.m. today. The alarm had been set off by burnt food. Firefighters spent only four minutes on scene -- clearing smoke from the building and resetting the alarm. There was no evacuation and no damage.

Other:

Ketchikan Fish and Wildlife troopers cited a man, 40, a resident of Kake, for sport fishing without a valid license outside of Kake on May 7. Arraignment is scheduled in Kake District Court for May 30.

After receiving reports about 1 a.m. today of an intoxicated male near Merchants Wharf, police placed a man (no age given) under arrest for disorderly concduct. He was lodged at state prison.
