On Mar. 25 at 11:17 a.m., David Johannes, 23, of Anchorage, contacted Alaska State Troopers to report that he had rolled his semi-truck near Mile 8.6 of the Seward Highway. Investigation revealed that Johannes was operating a red 2014 Peterbilt, towing two flatbed trailers, northbound on the Seward Highway. The first trailer was loaded with wire mesh, and the second trailer was loaded with a Conex. While attempting to negotiate an S-curve, the front trailer began tipping towards the northbound ditch. The trailer was unable to recover and rolled, causing the rear trailer and the truck to roll with it. The truck suffered substantial damage and blocked the northbound lane of the highway. The trailers rolled into the northbound ditch of the highway. Johannes denied suffering any injuries and reported to have been wearing his seat belt. Webb’s Towing responded to remove the truck and trailers from the roadway. Alcohol was not a factor.

On Mar. 26 at about 3:00 p.m., Alaska State Troopers stopped a Toyota sedan near Mile 9 of Funny River Road for an equipment violation. The driver was identified as Robert Jackson, 30, of Anchorage. The passenger was identified as April Olson, 40, of Anchorage. Investigation revealed that Jackson was driving under the influence of drugs. Both occupants were in possession of heroin. Jackson was arrested and taken to Wildwood Pretrial Facility on charges of driving under the influence and fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance. Olson was issued a misdemeanor citation and released on scene.

On Mar. 27 at 12:15 a.m., Alaska State Troopers received a report that a male was breaking into the storage units on Diamond Ridge Road in Homer.

The investigation is ongoing.

On Mar. 28 at 1:01 a.m., Alaska State Troopers stopped a blue 1989 Ford Crown Victoria on Robinson Loop Road for a traffic violation. William Lou Tucker-Harris, 27, of Sterling, was identified as a passenger. Investigation revealed that he had several outstanding warrants for his arrest for failure to appear in court as required. The initial charges included second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance. Tucker-Harris was arrested for the warrants and taken to Wildwood Pretrial Facility without bail, pending arraignment.

On Mar. 28 at 1:11 a.m., Alaska State Troopers stopped a 2011 red Chevrolet pickup for a moving violation at the intersection of Kalifornsky Beach Road and the Sterling Highway. Investigation resulted in the arrest of Ashly Rose, 25, of Wasilla, for an outstanding arrest warrant for probation violations on an original charge of second-degree theft. Rose was additionally charged with false information after she attempted to conceal her identity with a false name and was also charged with fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance when she was found to be in possession of a schedule IA controlled substance. She was taken to Wildwood Pretrial on $1,000 bail.

On Mar. 27 at 12:22 a.m., Alaska State Troopers attempted to locate Lanny Perrill, 31, of Soldotna, at a Soldotna residence and serve his outstanding arrest warrant. Investigation found that Casey Zearing, 30, of Nikiski, is Perrill’s third-party custodian. Further investigation found that Perrill was no longer within Zearing’s 24-hour sight and sound, as required by the conditions of release in two Kenai Court cases. A charge of violating custodial duties is being filed in Kenai Court.

On Mar. 27 at 9:49 p.m., Jonathan Avery, 34, of Soldotna, was arrested on an outstanding arrest warrant when he was contacted at a residence in the Gas Well Road area.
