After coffee shop burglary, officer on bike makes arrest

Corey Chad Everett Thompson in custody

A Juneau Police Department officer on bike patrol made an early-morning arrest Wednesday, authorities say.

At about 12:40 a.m. Wednesday, an alarm company called JPD to report that an alarm was going off at the Airport Heritage Coffee Shop, according to a JPD release. An officer nearby who was on bike patrol was the closest to the area and found two people near the scene.

Meanwhile, other officers went to the coffee shop and found an open door. They found pry marks on the door and damage to the cash register inside, the release states. A Heritage employee was called to the scene and estimated that about $600 in total damage had been done to the cash register and door, according to the release. No property or money appeared to be missing, the employee told police.

Police investigating the scene determined that one of the two detained subjects — 29-year-old Corey Chad Everett Thompson — had been inside the business. Thompson was arrested for second-degree burglary and fourth-degree criminal misconduct. He was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and held without bail. The release does not mention any charges for the second person detained, who was also not named in the release.
