Warrant arrest in Ketchikan results in a pair of arrests

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - What started out as an arrest of a man wanted on a $5,000 warrant resulted in two arrests in Ketchikan Friday evening.

    Alaska State Troopers contacted 27-year-old Kelli Lecornu of Ketchikan and arrested him on a $5,000 warrant on the original charge of violation of conditions of release since he was in possession of drug paraphernalia.

    Troopers found the suspect with 40-year-old Jennifer Blankenship also of Ketchikan.   She was found in possession of methamphetamine and heroin.  She was jailed on multiple drug charges at the Ketchikan Correctional Center.
