Troopers Release Brief on Underwear Bandit

            During the past week, Alaska State Troopers in Kodiak have received a series of burglary reports, criminal trespass, and theft that they believe are related. The troopers say citizens are returning home to find their residences have been entered and various items, but mostly womens' underwear, have been stolen and or rifled through.
           While investigating these crimes, AST has learned that other citizens in town have encountered similar events in the recent months, but have not reported them to law enforcement.
           One of those is Hannah Clark, a fisherman who lives in Bells Flats. She said she started noticing some of her things were moved around in her home over the summer when she'd come back in from fishing. She said it didn't really sink in until today (Wednesday) that those incidents and her missing underwear were related.
           “I can't believe there is an actual underwear bandit,” she said.
           What makes it worse, Clark said, is she just got a $150 order from Victoria Secrets and they're all gone. Clark said at least the underwear bandit has good taste.
           Troopers are reminding the public not to leave their homes unsecured and to be vigilant of their surroundings, and to report any suspicious activity. The investigation by troopers is ongoing and they're asking anyone with further information regarding this or similar activity, contact them at 486-4121.

          Both the Kodiak City Council and Borough Assembly are working to extend an Environmental Protection Agency exemption for vessel discharge. As part of the Clean Water Act, the EPA regulates vessel discharge permits for certain vessels, to make sure they are monitoring what water is being put back into the ocean. Commercial fishing and charter vessels have long been exempt from the permit and monitoring process, but that exemption is set to expire December 19.
           Local government officials are working with U.S. Senator Mark Begich to enact legislation to extend that exemption, or even make it permanent.
          During Monday’s city council work session, Councilman Terry Haines said it is a common sense move for fishing vessels, who would have to monitor stuff like dishwater and other things that have little to no environmental impact for the levels they are being discharged.
           “But fishing vessels are being kind of grouped up with vessels that have larger and potentially more harmful discharge and it’s been something that’s sort of been extended along this moratorium for specific vessels of these EPA. And it would be nice if they could make it permanent.”

          Yesterday was Veteran’s Day, and while services for Vets have been offered locally for some time, soon they will be able to access their very own clinic. A spokeswoman from Kodiak Area Native Association said construction is underway for a new Veteran’s Affairs Clinic on the corner of Mill Bay and Benny Benson Road. She said KANA purchased the property specifically for the clinic and expects to have it completed sometime in March.
          In the meantime, she emphasized that KANA does offer services for Vets, both Native and non-Native, so anyone interested should contact them to learn more about what is offered.
           As for the new clinic, she said some staff will be transferred over from current KANA offices, but they will likely also undergo a new hiring process, too.

Chamber Warns of Phone Scams
Wednesday, 12 November 2014

    The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce Monday sent an alert to its members warning them of a recent telephone scam they've become aware of.

    Members have received calls from someone identifying themselves as from “Merchant Account Services,” wanting to discuss over-billing. They then ask the business to fax them statements so they can discuss their account. Doing so could expose a company's private account details, opening them up to fraud.

    The chamber says the numbers have been coming from the 214 and 866 area codes, and recommends businesses not answer or hang up on the callers and then notify their bank to ensure their accounts are secure.

Forum to Help Identify Drug Use and Paraphernalia
Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Jay Barrett/KMXT

    Recognizing illegal drugs or paraphernalia is not always easy for many, especially if they've not been exposed to it. Because of that, friends or loved ones who may be abusing a drugs could be doing it without being immediately noticed.

    As a result, an ad hoc coalition of local organizations will be offering training at a forum scheduled for next week. The Native Village of Afognak, KANA, Healthy Tomorrows, Celebrate Recovery, the school district and Kodiak Police Department have joined together for the event. The organizations will inform the attendees on resources available in Kodiak they offer.

    The KPD will will have its new K-9 officer present to do a drug-sniffing demonstration, and will also make a presentation that simulates driving under the influence. It's called the “Drunk Buster.” You'll have to attend to get the full experience.

    The community forum is open to youth and adults. It'll be held on November 20th at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium Drama Pod from 6:30 to 8 p.m. There'll be pizza provided by Big Al's and door prizes.
