On August 26th, 2015, at about 4:00 in the afternoon, an off-duty Juneau Police Department officer spotted 30 year old Gregory Dewayne Crowley, a person with four current warrants for his arrest. Crowley was at a trailhead near Valley Boulevard. On-duty officers responded but were unable to locate Crowley, who had fled along the trail. All of Crowley’s warrants were issued in mid-2014 and he has avoided arrest since then. JPD would like to ask for the public’s assistance in locating Crowley.

Two of Crowley’s warrants are for misconduct involving drugs. JPD officers have found that people involved with drugs often carry weapons though there is no specific information about Crowley having weapons. The public is urged to use caution and not approach Crowley. The other two warrants are associated with failure to appear in court. One warrant stems from a theft charge and the other warrant stems from charges of criminal trespass and making a false report.

8/18/2015 - Don Abel`s Burglary

On August 8th, 2015, at about 1:30 in the morning, a person went into Don Abel’s Building Supply and took almost $4,000 worth of tools and knives. There is video surveillance of a person in dark clothing entering the store and taking items. The face of the suspect is not well-lit so identification from the video alone is difficult.

JPD may have collected some of the stolen tools from a person of interest who was arrested on August 12, 2015, for an unrelated burglary. The person of interest in the Don Abel burglary is 25 year old Albert M. Mazon of Juneau.

A large amount of property is unaccounted for and may have been hidden or is in the possession of other people. Dozens of tools are still missing along with about forty knives that were taken from a display case. JPD is releasing catalogue pictures of some of the knives in an attempt to get assistance from the public in finding more of the stolen items and identifying any additional suspects.

Because of the public’s assistance a person of interest has been named in this case. That person was named within an hour of the Crime of the Week being released. Multiple tipsters named the same person as the one in the ATM pictures.

The person of interest may have left town so JPD will be continuing to investigate and possibly ask officers in a different community to contact the man. JPD would like to thank everyone who provided tips on this case. The Crime Line Board will decide what reward will be paid during its regular meeting on August 12th, 2015.



On June 30, 2015, a woman reported that she had discovered a state issued credit card had been taken from her desk in the State Office Building. The woman learned the card was missing after she was asked about a $500 withdrawal from a Juneau Wells Fargo ATM. The woman had been storing the card in her desk with a note that provided the access code.

The investigation confirmed the card was used to withdraw $500 cash on June 19, 2015. There were also two unsuccessful attempts to make withdrawals with the card later that day at two different banks.

An officer of the Juneau Police Department served a search warrant on Wells Fargo and acquired pictures from the ATM camera. JPD has not yet been able to identify the man so is now asking for the public’s assistance.

On July 16, 2015, at about 3:23 in the morning, a 37 year old Juneau man reported he was assaulted in the 100 block of 4th Street, near the Capitol. The victim said a man he did not know threatened him with a silver-colored gun and a metal bat. Video of the area supports the victim’s statement, showing a man leaving the area with what appears to be a metal bat.

The victim describes the assailant as having tan skin, short black hair, and was about 5’08" inches tall and 180 pounds. He was not wearing a baseball hat in the video but the victim says the man was wearing a hat.

The victim ran down Seward Street, across Front Street, and down Franklin Street then called JPD. Officers responded to the area and did not locate anyone matching the description but saw a baseball hat in the street patrolling officers did not see earlier that night. That hat was collected since it is possible it had been worn by the suspect prior to the assault.

On June 28, 2015, at about 8:00 in the evening, a white male driving a stolen 1998 green Ford Explorer shoplifted from a grocery store and threatened the store employee who contacted him.

The suspect went into Safeway and put about nine items into a cart, including meat and a cheesecake. An employee noticed he was leaving without paying and contacted him. The man said to the female employee, "Ma’am, I will hurt you" and put his hand inside his jacket as though he had a weapon. The employee moved away from the man but used her phone to take a picture of him and the vehicle he was driving. She described the suspect as having scruffy facial hair and being extremely thin. He was wearing a black, hooded rain jacket and dark pants, possibly jeans. The man loaded the stolen groceries into the vehicle and drove away.

The employee also documented the license plate of the vehicle. It was later determined that the Explorer been stolen from a residence on Trafalgar Avenue.

Several hours after the theft at Safeway a JPD officer attempted a traffic stop on the involved vehicle. The driver fled on foot letting the stolen vehicle roll into a parked car in the 8500 block of Nugget Place. The driver was not located.
