After ducking jail time for a decade, a Texas man was finally taken into custody last week on an outstanding Unalaska warrant.  

David Barczi was sentenced to 70 days in prison in 2008 after he was found guilty of assaulting a law enforcement officer.

Police have charged a Nelson Lagoon man for breaking in to the community’s clinic to steal drugs, according to a statement from the Alaska State Troopers.

Troopers arrested Trevor Edwards, 24, after investigating the burglary on April 1.

They also arrested a 14-year-old boy from Nelson Lagoon who acted as an “accomplice.”

Edwards has been jailed in Anchorage on charges of burglary, criminal mischief, attempted misconduct involving a controlled substance, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

A small airplane landed on its belly Tuesday at the Unalaska airport. No one aboard was injured, but the accident shut down the runway for about four hours. 

Returning from Akun Island, the Grant Aviation plane touched down without landing gear around 1:30 p.m., according to a statement by the Alaska State Troopers (AST).

The pilot and two passengers exited safely and declined medical attention. But the aircraft -- a Super King Air 200 -- sat on the runway with bent propeller blades for several hours before officials could bring a crane to move it.
