Police and Fire

Posted: Thursday, October 26, 2000

Juneau police, fire officials, power company staff and state troopers reported:

Assaults:

A man, 47, called police about 3 p.m. Wednesday from the Mendenhall Valley requesting information regarding custody issues. Domestic violence assault was involved in the incident.

Thefts:

Shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday, a boy, 17, was cited and released for larceny at Mendenhall Mall Road after police responded to a report of a shoplifter.

Fires:

Capital City Fire & Rescue responded shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a smoking switch cabinet on Ferry Way. The electrical insulation failed and the switch cabinet had to be replaced, Peter Bibb of AEL&P said. A majority of customers were back in service in about half an hour. Most residents were aware of the incident when their lights dimmed for an instant, because of the brief short before a protective breaker could open, Bibb said.

Warrant arrests:

Shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday, a man, 40, turned himself in at the Juneau Police station on an outstanding $2,500 Alaska State Troopers warrant. The charge was failure to comply with conditions of probation stemming from original charges of second-degree theft, drunken driving and tampering with physical evidence. He was lodged at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Animal encounters:

About 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, police received a report of a bear on Egan Drive.

Other:

Capital City Fire & Rescue was asked to stand by at Auke Harbor Wednesday while a construction crane that had toppled and pierced the fuel pier was righted. The request was made a few minutes after noon; firefighters stood by for about an hour. The Coast Guard did not report any sheen at the scene.

Domestic violence calls: 1.
