Three arrests made in Ketchikan in separate cases

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - A stolen vehicle case in Ketchikan over the weekend resulted in the arrest of a 36 year old man.

    Alaska State Troopers contacted the suspect, Paul Jackson, just before midnight Saturday.  The Trooper dispatch says he attempted to abandon the vehicle at the end of Old Ward Lake Road and flee on a bicycle.

    Investigation revealed that he had allegedly taken  the vehicle earlier in the day.

    The investigation also revealed  that the Ketchikan man had two outstanding warrants in connection with parole violations dealing with original charges involving two counts of vehicle theft in the first degree and a unlawful evasion in the first degree.

    Troopers say Jackson was also found to be in possession of stolen property taken from the vehicle.  

    He was jailed at  the Ketchikan Correctional Center on no bail.


    Two arrests were made in separate cases in Saxman over the weekend.

    The Village Public Safety Officer and Ketchikan Troopers responded to a residence Saturday evening on a report of a disturbance.  

    It's alleged that 39 year old Marvin Charles, Jr., assaulted a family member and was in violation of a protective order.

    Charles was arrested and charged with assault, violating a protective order, and two counts of violation of conditions of release.

    He was jailed at the Ketchikan Correctional Center and held without bail pending arraignment.


    A fugitive from justice was located at another Saxman residence Saturday evening.  A Trooper dispatch reports that 28 year old Teeka Edenshaw had two outstanding warrants for her arrest stemming from the original charges of theft in the fourth degree.  

    She was taken to the Ketchikan Correctional Center.
