Two men to be extradited to separate states following arrests in Juneau

    JUNEAU, Alaska (KINY) - Two men arrested in Juneau over the weekend were found to have active warrants originating from other states.

    On Friday, June 30th, Juneau police officers responded to a report of a man driving erratically in a green Ford Explorer going down Egan Drive. According to a press release from JPD, the vehicle had reportedly jumped a curb and crossed the center line, causing concern that the driver may have been intoxicated.

    At approximately 1:30 p.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle on W. Eighth Street. The driver - 39-year-old John Anthony Martin - was found to be sober, but multiple outstanding arrest warrants from Albuquerque, New Mexico came up under his name. One of the warrants charged Martin with a probation violation stemming from an original charge of Aggravated Assault -Family - Weapon.

    Just after midnight on Sunday, July 2nd, JPD officers contacted 27-year-old Norbert Lopez at a downtown restaurant, determining that he had an outstanding arrest warrant from Port Orchard, Washington, charging the man with Possession with the Intent to Manufacture or Deliver Marijuana.

    Both men have been transported to Lemon Creek Correctional Center while they await extradition to their respective destinations.
