UPDATE 8/25/14

The picture of the suspect who took a gold nugget from a downtown Juneau jewelry store generated a great deal of attention over the weekend and multiple tips about the suspect`s identity. One of the people interested in the press was the suspect himself who called the jewelry store and provided a credit card number to pay for the gold nugget. Investigators will now work with the prosecutor`s office, examine the suspect`s criminal record, and do additional research to determine what, if any criminal charges, will be filed. Tipsters quoted a Facebook account that put the suspect, a former Juneau resident, in Juneau to fish the annual derby. His name is not being released pending a decision about charges.


On August 10th, 2014, at about 7:30 in the evening a man who appeared to be in his sixties took a gold nugget worth almost five thousand dollars from a jewelry store in the 200 block of Front Street. The man took the nugget from a display case, appeared to try and get the clerks attention, then put the nugget in his pocket and left the store.

An employee of the store says the same man made a purchase the day before providing the name of George Bentsen for that transaction. JPD patrol officers have been unable to locate a George Bentsen in Juneau.

8/1/2014 - Vandalism at Dzantiki Heeni Middle SchoolSOLVED


On 08/01/2014, JPD officers were able to identify the 5 juveniles who entered DZMS and caused the damage. Parents of the juveniles contact JPD to report that their children might have been involved with the incident. The juveniles were identified as a 16 year old male, a 10 year old male, an 8 year old male, a 7 year old male, and a 6 year old male. Interviews with the juveniles have either occurred, or are pending.

No further assistance is required by the public.


On July 26th, 2014, at about 8:30 in the evening a group of five or six children, ranging in age from seven to thirteen years old appear to have been involved in causing a small explosion behind Dzantiki Heeni Middle School. The explosion was from a black nylon bag with the brand label of Trailmaker Equipment. The cans inside consisted of three cans of Axe body spray and one can of Old Spice spray. The bag had been set on fire which caused the cans to explode.

The same group of children is believed to have been involved in entering the school causing damage to a window that will cost a thousand dollars to repair. The suspects also appear to have pried open a vending machine, taking snacks. Wrappers matching the snacks taken were later found at the athletic fields.

The suspects were recorded by surveillance cameras. Because of the youth of the suspects those pictures are not being released to the public. The Juneau Police Department is instead hoping to identify an adult who is familiar with the children who live in the area of the school. JPD hopes that adult will volunteer to try and help JPD identify the children so that appropriate contact with the parents, the school administrators where the children attend school, and juvenile justice authorities can happen.

JPD would also ask that parents who live in the area of the school ask their own kids about who is responsible for the incident. JPDtype of behavior will discuss what happened and will tell other children.
