4/1/2016 11:53 a.m. – Officers observed two cars doing donuts and racing in the Taku parking lot. The duo were seen flying through mud puddles and entering a restricted area. Officers pulled over one of the vehicles while the other sped away. The offending juvenile driver was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign. He was also banned from UAF. UAF Facilities determined that no damage was done to the parking lot.
4/1/2016 9:22 p.m. – Officers were on nightly rounds locking up the parking garage on Barnette Street when they found an intoxicated individual in the CTC stairwell. The stairwell at CTC is known to be frequented by transients. The man blew a .214 on the portable breath test. Officers took the man to the Fairbanks Correctional Center to sleep off the drink.
4/2/2016 4:27 a.m. – Officers were unable to rouse a man they found apparently sleeping in his car parked at Geist Rd. McDonald’s. Officers yelled and banged on his car windows but Corey L. Shaw, 26, of North Pole did not respond. Officers opened the door and shook Shaw awake, and he became combative. Shaw was incoherent and making strange statements. He was arrested and transported to FCC for disorderly conduct.
4/2/2016 11:39 p.m. – A call led officers to the exit outside The Pub. A man in possession of a white powdery substance was found there. He willingly gave the suspicious substance to officers. After testing the powder it was determined to not be a controlled substance, but instead a powdered form of caffeine. The man readily claimed he snorted the substance. No charges were filed as the substance is not illegal.
4/4/2016 10:36 a.m. – A grey and silver GT Outpost mountain bike with gold pedals was reported stolen from a bike rack at the south-side of the Wood Center. The bike lock was cut and police took the remnants as evidence. The bike is valued at $350.
