2 arrested in multi-agency effort

JPD, FBI, Troopers and U.S. Marshals were involved.

Multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in the Thursday afternoon arrest of two people on multiple outstanding warrants, the Juneau Police Department announced.

Officers from JPD, Alaska State Troopers, U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force and FBI arrested Clyde Pasterski, 40, and Alicia Pasterski, 35, at a residence on the 9000 block of Lakeview Court, JPD said in a news release.

“We routinely collaborate with AST and the FBI on local events. It is not uncommon with big warrants and since one warrant was a federal ATF (warrant), it made sense to also work with the Marshals,” said JPD public safety manager Erann Kalwara in an email. “It’s good to have our partners aware of what we are doing and work together when possible.”

Clyde Pasterski was arrested on a felony warrant for failure to comply with conditions of release for an original offense of three counts of third-degree misconduct involving weapons, according to police, as well as a warrant for felon in possession of a firearm. The nature of the offenses dictated a joint approach, Kalwara said.

Alicia Pasterski was arrested on a felony warrant for failure to comply with conditions of release for an original offense of third-degree assault, according to police, as well as a felony warrant for third-degree escape and third-degree criminal mischief and a misdemeanor warrant for first-degree unlawful contact.

“Clyde and Alicia Pasterski were arrested by the U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Fugitive Task Force,” said FBI spokesperson Chloe Martin in an email. “At the time of the arrest, the FBI was there in a supporting role.”

The arrests were made without incident, Kalwara said. Kalwara credited JPD’s investigative team with locating the pair for apprehension.

“We are pleased that the warrants were served. Clyde was deemed potentially armed and dangerous,” Kalwara said. “Having a positive outcome of getting both off the streets and lodged at LCCC is great for our community.”

Both Pasterskis were taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center, according to police. Clyde Pasterski is being held without bail, while Alicia Pasterski’s bail is set at $10,000.
