    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Multiple arrests were made after authorities serviced a search warrant on a residence in Anchorage.

    On Tuesday a state trooper emergency reaction team, assisted by local police and the department of corrections, responded to a residence on North Idaho Street in Anchorage for a search warrant service.

    An investigation led to the arrest of 43-year-old Anchorage man Robert McKinley after firearms and controlled substances were located in the residence.

    He was arrested for misconduct involving a controlled substance in the second and third degrees, as well as misconduct involving weapons in the second and third degrees.
