Police arrest three in Douglas, find possible home burglary connection

Juneau police arrested three people — one in connection to a recent residential burglary and two on outstanding warrants — Tuesday morning after searching a Douglas Island home with the help of a drug detection dog.

In a press release issued Tuesday afternoon, the Juneau Police Department announced they arrested Anthony Benjamin Kalk, 30, in the 2200 block of Raven Road, near Lawson Creek Road in Douglas, on one count of first-degree burglary, a felony, and two counts of second-degree theft, also a felony.

Police said the charges relate to a home burglary that took place in the 3900 block of North Douglas Highway on Monday. Officers searched the Raven Road residence for property believed to have been stolen, and they collected two firearms, among other items, during the search, the release states.

JPD’s K-9, Buddy, was on the scene to assist officers with the search, the release states. In a phone call Tuesday afternoon, JPD Lt. Kris Sell would not elaborate if Buddy found any drugs, citing the ongoing investigation.

Officers also arrested Brandon Ross Stephens, 32, and Chrystal Rose Phillips, 28, on outstanding warrants at the scene. Stephens had five warrants out for his arrest, police said, ranging from failure to appear in court to driving without a license. The bail on his warrants totaled $1,700.

Police said Phillips had one warrant out, and that it stemmed from a charge of promoting contraband. Her warrant did not allow for bail.

JPD said charges are possible for one or more of the people who were also contacted at the residence during the search.
