JUNEAU - A 28-year-old Juneau man was arrested early Monday morning after police found him in a ditch near a convenience store in Auke Bay that had been burglarized.

Joel Mundy was charged with second-degree burglary and fourth-degree theft. He was arrested at about 3:15 a.m. near DeHart's Auke Bay Store.

Police arrived at the store to find the front door shattered.

They searched the area and found Mundy in a nearby ditch with fresh cuts on his hands and packs of unopened cigarettes in his clothes and in a plastic bag he carried, police said. He initially ran, but police stopped him with a Taser.

Mundy was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital, then transported to the police department for additional questioning. He was subsequently arrested and lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center without bail.
