A Kenai man has been arraigned on charges of burglary, theft and violating a protective order.

Alexander Jensen, 27, was previously arraigned on July 13 on one charge of hindering prosecution in the second degree for lying to troopers about his brother’s whereabouts after he was reported for an act of domestic violence on July 12. Since then, Jensen was accused of violating the terms of a protective order on July 21.

On Sunday, Alaska State Troopers responded to Vagabond Inn in Kenai, where Jensen had allegedly entered the inn and attempted to steal a bottle of alcohol, twice. While there, he also allegedly violated the terms of a protective order.

Jensen was arraigned Monday at the Kenai Courthouse on one count of violating a protective order, two counts of burglary in the second degree and two counts of theft in the fourth degree. The court set him a $2,500 performance bond and appointed him a third party custodian.

Charging documents and trooper affidavits show Jensen contacted the same woman both times he allegedly violated a protective order. On July 21, he sent the woman several texts, though he was not to contact her directly or indirectly.

“(The woman) showed me her cell phone and three text messages,” Sgt. Jay Sjogren wrote in an affidavit. “There were many more from earlier in the day from the same number.”

If convicted of all charges, Jensen faces up to more than 12 years in prison and a fine of up to $126,000.

Attempts to reach Jensen for comment were not successful.
