Thefts, lost/found items:

A woman, 33, reported about 9 a.m. Monday that an inflatable pool was taken from her back yard on Taku Boulevard sometime Sunday night. No description of or value for the pool was given.

About 2:30 p.m. Monday, a man, 40, reported the theft of a cart used to store folding chairs from Whittier Street. The metal cart is about 3.5 feet tall, 10 feet long, and runs on four small wheels.

About 4:30 p.m. Monday, a citizen brought to the Juneau Police Station two, 21-speed Huffy bikes that were found on Lemon Creek Road. They were placed in safekeeping.


About 4 p.m. Monday, a girl, 12 years old, was arrested on one count of third-degree domestic assault and one fourth-degree count of domestic assault in the Mendenhall Valley. She was lodged at the Johnson Youth Center.

Impounded vehicle:

The city Harbor Department impounded a Ford pickup shortly before midnight Monday at Auke Bay Harbor. The truck was impounded for parking overnight in a two-hour parking area.

Animal encounters:

A bear was sighted early Monday near the corner of Alder and Martin Streets, and scattered garbage was found a block away at the dead end of Pine Street. Another bear has been sighted on several occasions on Gastineau Avenue. Residents are encouraged to secure their trash.

Intoxicated persons:

Shortly after 8 p.m. Monday, a man, 47, was issued a citation for being intoxicated on a licensed premises, the Lucky Lady. He was released into the charge of Juneau Recovery Hospital.

Minutes after midnight Monday, a man, 36, was issued a citation for being intoxicated on a licensed premises, the Imperial Bar. He was transported to a residence in the Lemon Creek area and released to the custody of a friend.


Capital City Fire & Rescue was summoned to a small brush fire at 11:19 a.m. Monday on the Juneau Airport dike. The fire took about an hour and a half to extinguish.


On Saturday, a law enforcement team from Coast Guard Station Juneau boarded 21 boats whose home port was Juneau. The voyages of three of the boats were terminated for insufficient safety gear. The three terminations had one thing in common -- problems with personal flotation devices, or PFDs. Two of the boats had insufficient PFDs for the number of people aboard; one did not carry a PFD the correct size for the child aboard. Other common violations included no proof of registration, no sound-producing devices and no visual distress signals. Boaters are reminded to carry registration certificates and to check their visual distress signals to make sure they have not expired.

Domestic violence calls: 1.

Alcohol-related calls: 2.
