Sometime between October 17th and October 20th, 2014, someone took a 1992 Toyota mini-van, gray in color and with a hatchback, from in front of a storage unit on Brandy Lane. The vehicle was found in the Fred Meyer parking lot by a Juneau Police Department Community Service Officer on October 21, at about 2:00 in the afternoon.

The discovery may have caused the suspect to abandon the vehicle before he or she planned. There was a great deal of personal property in the vehicle that either belonged to the suspect or was stolen in other incidents. One such item is a worn men’s extra- large black leather jacket which was collected along with other clothing.

This suspect is also likely to be associated with drug use as multiple syringes were found in the vehicle. Officers have collected fingerprints and DNA, which are being analyzed. The case is of particular interest to JPD as there have been multiple recent thefts in the area around Industrial Boulevard. These crimes may all be associated with one person or a small group of individuals.

10/17/2014 - Multiple Gas Siphonings

Between September 18th and the 24th, several Juneau residents reported gas siphoned from vehicles. There was 44 gallons taken from the 1900 block of Lemon Creek Road, 40 gallons from the 1700 block of Glacier Highway and 5 gallons from the 4200 block of North Douglas.

All of the vehicles involved were built in the mid-1990s. Vehicles built after 2000 often have a valve that shuts off gas if a vehicle rolls. The valve is a fire protection device that also prevents someone from pushing a hose into the gasoline. JPD recommends drivers of vehicles built before the year 2000 consider a locking gas cap, especially if gas has already been stolen. Thieves will tend to return to a vehicle where they have previously been successful.

10/10/2014 - Car Rifling on Cinema Drive

On September 27, 2014, at about 10:15 in the evening, a woman reported someone had entered her vehicle and taken an Apple Macbook and a Yamaha trumpet. There were no signs of forced entry. The theft happened while the woman was at the movie theater at 9091 Cinema Drive.

JPD would like to remind movie-goers that their vehicles are an attractive target since thieves know the person will be gone for a defined period of time. Those drivers should take extra precautions to make sure vehicles are locked and not to leave valuables within view if someone were to look into the car. One option is to lock valuables in the trunk of a car, which is much more difficult for thieves to access and usually won`t be accidentally left unlocked as can happen with passenger doors.

On September 17th, at about 10:34 in the evening, officers of the Juneau Police Department (JPD) responded to an alarm at Costco. Responding officers found the jewelry case inside Costco had been broken open and about $40,000 worth of jewelry taken. A witness reported seeing a male suspect wearing a green Carhartt style coat and having short, brown hair fleeing the area carrying items in his arms.

Officers searched the area and found a new watch, apparently dropped by the suspect, between Costco and a building containing two businesses near the automotive service end of Costco.

The first alarms went off when the suspect broke into the jewelry case. It appears the suspect had hidden inside the store prior to closing.

JPD is releasing several pictures of the stolen jewelry, including a photo of a $4,000 dollar men’s watch.

A Juneau woman did post watches for sale on a Facebook page called Juneau Buy-Sell within hours of the burglary. A JPD Detective has examined those watches and they are not from Costco and were legitimately acquired. No further tips about that posting are needed.
