Aleutians East Borough

In Sand Point, police have arrested a local resident who was previously at large, following a spree of burglaries and thefts.

Officer Eric Tupper said police can't release the name of the individual yet, citing the ongoing investigation. But he said the person faces more than 10 pending charges.

The crimes began about two weeks ago, when the individual broke into the main city building and a local bar. Police issued an arrest warrant, but they couldn't find the individual until Thursday morning.
