Alaska State Troopers arrested a man wanted on a felony warrant after a standoff Tuesday in a Sterling trailer.
Troopers first contacted Richard Sisson in the Sterling area on Aug. 28, but he gave them a fake identity and fled, according to an online trooper dispatch. By the time they returned to the address where they originally found him on Tuesday, troopers had discovered Sisson had “an active felony arrest warrant through the U.S. (Marshals) office, in addition to being on federal felony probation,” troopers wrote in the dispatch.
Sisson had barricaded himself in his trailer in Sterling, so the Soldotna branch of the Alaska State Trooper Special Emergency Reaction Team was called and “breached the trailer,” according to the dispatch.
Sisson surrendered and was arrested, and troopers took him to Wildwood Pretrial Facility, according to the dispatch. He was charged with one count of providing false information to an officer, a class A misdemeanor, and was arraigned at the Kenai Courthouse on Wednesday morning, according to online court records.
