Alaska State Troopers release list of most wanted criminals for the Fairbanks area
The Alaska State Troopers (AST) have released a list of their most wanted criminals for the Fairbanks Area.
"The people that we have on this list for this month -- and we plan on doing this on a monthly basis -- are wanted for major thefts and burglaries that are occurring in the area, and also some of them are wanted for very violent crimes," said AST Sergeant Charles Inderrieden. He said they are working to stop thefts and violent crime in the interior.
Inderrieden said that if someone does see a person on the list or knows where they are to call the troopers.
"We don't want them to necessarily approach unless they happen to be a family member or something and they are already near them,” Inderrieden said. “We would like them to call the Alaska State Troopers at area code (907) 451-5100 -- that's the administrative line that will go to dispatch right after hours -- and just let them know that they are in contact with somebody who is on the Alaska State Trooper most wanted list for that month."
Inderrieden said that the Troopers will send someone to make contact with that person, adding that having the public help is a force multiplier and allows them to more effectively do their job.
