On the morning of Nov. 12, a white 2014 Ford van was reported stolen from the driveway of a residence in the 9000 block of North Douglas Highway. The complainant reported last seeing the van at 10 p.m., and that the keys had been in the van. The van was located shortly after JPD was called, crashed into a guardrail at the end of North Douglas Highway and totaled, according to police.

A week later on Nov. 19, police received a report from a residence in the 8600 block of Dudley Street that four ATV Maxxis 24X8-18 tires had been stolen from a garden shed. The tires had last been seen on Nov. 14, according to the news release. The tires were valued at approximately $400.

Theft from vehicle

On Nov. 24, JPD received a report of a theft from inside a vehicle in the 8000 block of Airport Boulevard. The complainant reported that after returning to Juneau and collecting their vehicle after dropping it off for maintenance and leaving town, several items were missing, according to the news release. Approximately $1,700 in cash and several personal paintings were stolen from the vehicle, according to the complainant.
