On Friday, the Juneau Police Department requested help from the public in catching a man wanted on an Alaska State Troopers warrant. Early Tuesday morning, JPD got that assistance and found its man.
At 1:27 a.m. Tuesday, JPD got a tip about the location of Seth Martin Timmer, a 42-year-old Juneau man who had an arrest warrant out for not complying with the conditions of his probation. The original charge was third-degree assault.
JPD officers found Timmer in a car in the Mendenhall Valley and arrested him without incident. He was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
Timmer is also a person of interest in a vehicle theft and not stopping at direction of an officer earlier this month on Dredge Lake Road.
According to online court records, Timmer has a long history of trouble with the law in Anchorage, Juneau and Sitka dating back to 1997.
In 2012, a jury found Timmer guilty of strangling his girlfriend in May 2011 in Sitka, according to a memorandum opinion filed by Alaska Court of Appeals Chief Judge David Mannheimer in 2016. In 2012, Sitka Judge David George sentenced Timmer to 36 months in prison with 18 months suspended. Timmer failed to appear for a February 2017 scheduled visit with his probation officer, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
