Multiple Anchor Point cabins were discovered burglarized this week.
Around 11am Wednesday State Troopers investigated two cabins in the area which had been busted into. The doors had been pried open, and a chainsaw was reported missing. Both cabins were unoccupied. There was evidence the burglars had attempted to break into a third unoccupied cabin.
Megan Peters with the Alaska State Troopers said these kind of crimes are common at certain times of the year…
Peters: “Any time we have a change of season, or when there’s one time of year when you do one specific thing, for example, changing your tires over. You have four tires, you put them in your shed, you never go to your shed for any other reason, and then when you go to change your tires back out, you find that your property’s been burglarized. A really good way to increase your chances of potentially getting your property back, or to keep people away from your property is have more activity around it. Make sure you check on it once a week, and that way if you do find something missing, it’s a week time frame that law enforcement can focus on and potentially identify a suspect or find your property, instead of something like a three-month period.”
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Alaska State Troopers at 262-4453 or make an anonymous tip to Peninsula Crimestoppers at 283-8477.
