…..JUNEAU CRIME LINE ANNOUNCES SPECIAL REWARD….
Juneau Crime Line is doubling the DUI reward to $200.00 for information leading to the arrest of drunk or drug impaired drivers over the Fourth of July holiday period. This two hundred dollar reward is offered from July first through July 15th. Have a happy and safe Fourth of July.
Reward offered for information about the Racial Incident at Celebration
On June 14, 2014, at about 9:30 a.m., a racial incident marred the close of Celebration 2014. The incident happened at the end of Saturdays parade. Native veterans acted as flag bearers and led the parade through downtown Juneau. Then the veterans formed a corridor on Willoughby Avenue next to Centennial Hall for the dancers to pass through as they finished the parade.
A white male grabbed the American flag out of the hands of a 67 year old native man. The white male yelled racial slurs at the native man and the crowd and attempted to spit on the flag. He then tried to run off with the flag. People in the area wrestled the flag away from the suspect who then ran away toward Whittier Street. The suspect also shoved people as he ran away, including a 53 year old native woman. Two Juneau Police Department officers on bikes and one in a patrol car searched the area but could not find the suspect. Now JPD needs the publics assistance in identifying the man responsible for the incident.
The suspect is described as between 30 and 50 years old. He was wearing a lighter toned multi-colored knit hat under the hood of a dark, possibly blue, jacket.
Many people were taking pictures and video of the dancers going through the flag corridor. Crime Line is offering a reward for a picture, video, or other information that leads to the identification of the suspect. Even if there is no video of the incident itself it is possible that someone documented the presence of the man in the crowd prior to the incident. Please see the Crime of the Week section to help solve this crime.

$2,500 ARSON REWARD PROGRAM ANNOUNCED
Juneau Crime Line, in conjunction with the Juneau Police Department and concerned local businesses and residents, is instituting a special $2,500 reward program for information leading to the arrest of individual(s) responsible for the unlawful arson incidents that have been occurring in the City and Borough of Juneau.
In the time period of January 2011 through February 2012, 31 arson incidents were reported in our community. These included eleven vehicle fires, fire damage to the turfs at Adair-Kennedy Park and Thunder Mountain High School sports fields, and the destruction of a porta-potty. The Twin Lakes Play Ground was set afire as well. Most troubling was the middle of the night vehicle/carport fire set at the Crow Hill Condominiums that could have resulted in tragedy if the fire had spread to the complex and trapped unaware sleeping residents. The total damage estimate of these incidents exceeds $100,000.
"We decided to set up this special ARSON REWARD Program because of our concern about the unusual number of arson incidents over the past year. Ideally, we'd like to stop this pattern before it escalates into something that causes personal injury or loss of life," stated Juneau Crime Line Vice President Mindy Rowland.
"Arson crimes are of special concern, not only because of the high costs associated with them, but because these offenders can evolve to committing more serious crimes" stressed JPD Sergeant Paul Hatch.
Shattuck & Grummett Insurance, Malia Hayward State Farm, Juneau Crime Line and individual community members have pledged money to this special fund. Reward(s) of up to $2,500 will be paid in the event that the information received by the Juneau Police Department (586-0600) or via the Juneau Crime Line website (juneaucrimeline.com) is instrumental in the issuance of a warrant for arrest or a grand jury indictment.
This program is in addition to other Juneau Crime Line programs such as the $100 reward provided to individuals whose information is instrumental in getting people who drive under the influence (DUI) off our streets and rewards of up to $1,000 for information relating to unsolved cases.
Juneau Crime Line would like to remind you that tips provided through the Crime Line website can remain anonymous. Juneau Crime Line is solely funded by donations from the community.
