A Fairbanks Sober Center employee was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of felony second-degree terroristic threatening for alleged comments about shooting coworkers and other civilians.

The Tanana Chiefs Conference reported threats Monday afternoon to the Fairbanks Police Department, initiating emergency protocol and will be closed until further notice.

On July 11, 31-year old Matthew Misewicz told a coworker that he had a bullet with his supervisor’s name on it, according to charging documents.

The defendant said Misewicz was disabling cameras at the Fairbanks Sobering Center on July 13 and told her that he “had enough ammo to take out Fred Meyers and Walmart.”

On July 14, he showed the same coworker multiple guns in the trunk of his car, including an AR-15, a vest with ammo and magazines, two other firearms and additional ammo.

The Tanana Chiefs Conference told police that the Fairbanks Sobering Center will remain closed until further notice for safety and security concerns.
