Two Juneau men jailed on theft charges

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau Police arrested two men after they allegedly attempted to steal a snow plow.

    They were found with a stolen trailer, according to Police Lieutenant Krag Campbell who says the call came in from a man  who resides in the 1700 block of Anka Street at 12:01 Thursday morning.

    The caller reported the two men were digging the snow around the snow plow and were trying to move it. The two men left the area in a Ford pickup, without taking the plow.

    Responding officers located the Ford pickup in the area, which was pulling a trailer at the time. Officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle and identified the occupants as 33 year old Stephen Haseltine and 27 year old Gabriel Falzarano.

    Police say the pair admitted to being on the property where the snow plow was located, but claimed to have permission to borrow it.
    Officers determined that the trailer attached to the vehicle was not owned by Haseltine or Falzarano. The trailer was registered to a local business.
    The responsible party told police nobody had permission to use the trailer.

    The suspects were placed under arrest for theft in second degree, a class C felony; attempted theft in the second degree, a class A misdemeanor; and criminal trespass in the first degree, also a class A misdemeanor.

    They were jailed at the  the Lemon Creek Correctional Center where they were held without bail.
