Click to Enlarge

The Juneau Police Department would like to offer encouragement and support to anyone wanting to get healthier in 2016, including losing weight if that is a goal. However, JPD objects to the selfishness of one man who, at about 10 in the morning on December 15th, 2015, stole an expensive scale from Bartlett Regional Hospital. The scale was being used at Weight Watchers meetings held at BRH. Even if the man is committed to his own 2016 resolution he has literally robbed a group of people of the ability to weigh in at a meeting.

The scale is a Tanita BWB-800AS Digital Physician Scale worth $550. Surveillance video did capture a picture of the man. He was wearing blue jeans, a hooded sweatshirt, had a red jacket, and was wearing a hat with a marijuana reference, the initials on it. The baseball hat was black with yellow letters.

12/4/2015 - Travelodge Robbery

JPD detectives are continuing to investigate the robbery that occurred at the Travelodge several days ago. Further descriptors of the suspect are as follows: adult male, light to medium skin tone, 5’9” – 6’ tall, 250-300 pounds (heavy build), wearing black hooded coat with red shirt under, black pants, black shoes, and black gloves.


The Travelodge Hotel at 9200 Glacier Highway was robbed on December 1, 2015, during an incident very similar to an unsolved robbery that took place there on September 23, 2015. The robbers were dressed similarly with covered faces and the robbery happened at about the same time of day. The September robbery happened at 8:30 in the evening and the December 1, 2015, robbery happened at about 8:00 in the evening. In both robberies the suspect is wearing a black hooded sweatshirt that seems to be stuffed with material to conceal body shape. During the recent robbery the suspect bends over and reveals the bottom of a red shirt he is wearing under the sweatshirt. The suspect appears to be about 6 feet tall and 250 pounds.

The recent robbery was more violent than the September robbery, with a female customer being threatened with something that looked like a wrapped up gun and a male customer was punched in the face. The suspect went behind the desk and appeared to hit the male clerk multiple times and then took the money out of the till himself. The clerk had a shallow laceration on his head from being hit.

The suspect fled the same direction as the suspect in the September robbery, going on foot from the hotel to Lee Smith Drive then traveling toward O`Day Drive.

On November 23, 2015, at about 7:30 in the morning, the Juneau Economic Development Council building at 612 West Willoughby Avenue was burglarized.

An early arriving employee may have startled the burglar, who got away with only a laptop computer. The brand of computer is Lenovo and it was valued at $500.

Filing cabinets and desks had been opened. Items from the office had been stacked near the window that was used to enter and exit. Those items, mostly office supplies, were left behind.

On October 27th, 2015, at about 4:18 in the afternoon, there was a hit and run in the Fred Meyer parking lot. An occupied vehicle was struck but the two people inside were not injured.

The impact of the red pickup hitting a white passenger car was so great that the red pickup bent in the middle behind the cab area. That part of the frame almost touched the ground. The headlights and taillights of the red pickup were pointing upward after the collision as the suspect vehicle was in a V-shape following the impact. The driver was able to drive the vehicle from the scene.

Surveillance video from the business showed the red pickup prior to the collision. JPD is requesting the publics help in finding the suspect vehicle and the hit and run driver.
