Dispatch Text:

On 1/18/21, Alaska Wildlife Troopers cited Daniel Jordan Ellingsen, age 33 of Sitka for failing to submit fish tickets within 7 days of landing and unlawful storage of commercial Dungeness crab gear.  Previous investigation showed Ellingsen, as the permit holder on the F/V Yentna, had taken and sold crab but had failed to submit fish tickets for crab delivered within 7 days.  Additionally, Troopers located crab gear remaining on the grounds after the season for commercial Dungeness crab fishing and the storage period for crab gear, had both ended.  Arraignment is set in the District Court at Sitka. 

Location: North Pole

Type: Residential Structure Fire

Dispatch Text:

On Friday, January 14, 2022, at 11:54 am, the Alaska State Troopers were notified of a residential structure fire in North Pole. Multiple fire agencies responded to the trailer fire. Two adults that were inside the residence when the fire occurred were able to escape and one was transported to a Fairbanks area hospital as a precaution. The residence was a total loss. An Alaska Department of Public Safety Deputy Fire Marshal from Fairbanks responded to the scene to conduct an origin and cause investigation. The deputy fire marshal determined that the fire started in an arctic entry on the back of the residence and determined the cause to be incendiary. 30-year-old Fairbanks resident Travis Sieben, who was prohibited from being near the address of the fire, was seen fleeing the area on foot just after the fire was reported. Sieben was located at a Fairbanks area hospital a short time later. Sieben was arrested on charges of probation violation and unlawful contact. He was booked into the Fairbanks Correctional Center. Additional charges may be filed.

Location: Interior Alaska

Advisory Text:

The Alaska Wildlife Troopers in Fairbanks have recently responded to numerous incidents involving aggressive moose across Interior Alaska. The snow and rain that accumulated in late December has created conditions that are very challenging for moose. As a result of these conditions, moose are highly stressed and have been acting more aggressively than is normal. Alaskans should expect to encounter moose more frequently on roadways, plowed roads, packed snowmobile trails, and foot trails. Expect that moose will be less willing to leave the trails when people attempt to pass and may stand their ground or attack when confronted.

Additionally, moose may act aggressively toward loose dogs which can lead to an attack on the dog’s owner. It is unlawful for dogs to chase, harass or attack moose. Do not provide food such as hay or straw to the moose since it will give them incentive to return to your area and it is unlawful to feed wild game animals. Moose that are not willing to leave or are acting aggressively are very dangerous and should not be confronted. Loud noises or motions meant to scare a moose away may elicit an attack from a moose that is acting aggressively. If you wish to report an aggressive animal please contact the Alaska Wildlife Troopers at (907) 451-5100 or the Alaska Department of Fish and Game at (907) 459-7200.

Location: Kodiak

Type: Retention of Undersized Tanner Crab

Dispatch Text:

On 1/19/22 at approximately 1355 hours, Kodiak AWT conducted a dockside boarding of the F/V Alaskan Pearl, and charged Filaret Basargin, age 38 of Homer, with retention of undersized crab during the Kodiak commercial Tanner crab fishery. Basargin was issued a summons with an arraignment date of 2/04/22 in Kodiak District Court.
