About 11 a.m. Thursday, a man, 19, was arrested on an outstanding troopers warrant charging failure to comply with court-ordered sentencing. He was transported to and lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Underage drinking:

About 3 a.m. this morning, police investigated suspicious activities near an automatic teller machine on Mendenhall Mall Road and issued citations to two boys, 15 and 16 years old, for minor consuming.


Capital City Fire & Rescue responded about 10 a.m. Thursday to a fire alarm at the Montessori School in Douglas. The cause of the false alarm was a ``malicious pulled station'' -- that is, apparently a mischievous child pulled the alarm.

About 1 p.m. Thursday, firefighters responded to a false alarm at the Alaska Office Building.


The cruise ship Regal Princess spotted a boat hull floating 18 miles south of Yakutat on Thursday, and alerted the Coast Guard. A jet and helicopter were scrambled to the apparent emergency, and the cutter Sweetbriar also headed for the site. A rescue diver dove on the boat, and found a tree impaling the pilot house, but no one aboard. Investigation showed the boat was the Traveler II, a 38-foot Canadian fishing vessel that went down April 30 in Douglas Entrance. All hands were rescued then. The vessel had drifted nearly 400 miles since it sank, the Coast Guard estimated.

About 4 a.m. today, a man, 21, was issued a citation at a trailer court on Stephen Richards Memorial Drive for driving while his operator's license was not in force. The vehicle was released to a licensed driver.

Alcohol-related calls: 1.
