AnchorageJuly 25, 2013

An officer responded to the area and picked up the blown-over signs that warned of said danger.

Noise Disturbance – Officer advised several men who were playing music while filling a cement mixer that there had been a complaint about the volume of the music, but not the mixer.  The men turned off their radio.

Drunk Disturbance – Officer responded to the Airport Bar regarding an obnoxious patron who had expressed his reluctance to leave the premises by punching and kicking windows and doors. The man had fled the area by the time officers arrived. No property was damaged by his tirade.

Trespass – The obnoxious patron caused additional, similar problems at the Grand Aleutian Hotel, and was advised, per Unisea Security, that he was no longer welcome at any Unisea liquor establishment.

Criminal Mischief – A woman found that the inside of her vehicle had been sprayed with some type of mildly acidic substance which caused significant skin, mucous and eye irritation. One suspect was tentatively identified. Under investigation.

Criminal Mischief – Caller reported that a neighbor had used his chest freezer as a stool to gain access to a window, and had broken the freezer by turning it on its side. The suspect readily admitted to having used the freezer in just such a manner, and agreed to pay for a new one if in fact the freezer was broken as a result of his actions.
