Compiled from Anchorage Police Department reports.

Police have arrested one of two suspects in a Jan. 17 home invasion in Eagle River.

According to police, warrants were issued for Kasey S. Dunlap, 42, and Christa J. Chadwell, 31, on felony robbery charges. Caldwell was arrested Jan. 18 and Dunlap, who is also wanted on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear on an operating under the influence case, is still at large.

Police said the armed robbers broke into a home on Breckenridge Drive in Eagle River and demanded drugs and money at around 5 a.m. Jan. 17.

Dunlap is described as 5-feet-7 inches tall, 170 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. Chadwell is 5-feet-2, 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

APD spokeswoman Renee Oistad said several people inside the residence on the 122000 block of Breckenridge reported that suspects entered the home armed with handguns. Police said the suspects left with “personal property belonging to some of the victims” but did not say what items were taken.

Oistad said the event does not appear to have been random. Police continue to investigate.

The incident happened just blocks from the scene of a shooting Jan. 4 in which police said a man was injured while checking on someone going through vehicles in the neighborhood.

Police are asking anyone who knows the location of Dunlap to call them at 786-8900.

Argument escalates to ramming car

A male and female, who had a prior relationship, got into a verbal argument in the parking lot of a restaurant on Jan. 20. The female, 26-year-old Christina Lenz of Eagle River, used her car to purposely ram the male’s vehicle. Lenz was arrested and charged with criminal mischief.

Domestic dispute turns physical

A husband and wife got into a verbal argument that turned physical. During the altercation furniture inside their home was damaged, cell phones were broken, and a knife was stabbed into a wall. The male half had visible bloody scratches on his face. The wife, 29-year-old Angel Worth of Wasilla, was arrested and charged with Assault III.

Plates stolen

The front and rear license plates were stolen off of a vehicle while parked at Body Renew.

Attempted theft

A citizen called police Jan. 17 when she saw a male, dressed in dark clothing and wearing a ski mask, outside of her neighbor’s house. The citizen knew the neighbor was not at home at that time. Police responded and were able to make contact with the homeowner. It did not appear that anything had been stolen or damaged but it did look like the suspect was trying to steal the trailer which had a lock on the hitch.

Guns stolen

Two handguns were stolen from a vehicle while it was parked at the owner’s workplace on Jan. 18.


Two vehicles were traveling towards one another on the Old Glenn Highway Jan. 16. One vehicle was in the turn lane to go west and the second vehicle was in the turn lane to go east. The first vehicle failed to turn, cutting off the second vehicle. The two vehicles side swiped one another. The driver of the first vehicle was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device.

Suspicious baggie

Officers made contact with the female occupant of a vehicle that was parked behind Salvation Army after hours on Jan. 15. The vehicle also had expired tags on it. The woman attempted to surreptitiously discard a baggie with brown residue in it. The substance was field-tested for heroin, meth, and cocaine but did not show positive results for those drugs. The baggie was seized for evidence. No charges were filed at that time.
