Wanted man located in laundry pile, arrested

Williams had five warrants out for combined $6,500.

The Juneau Police Department found a man wanted for multiple warrants late Wednesday night in a woman’s laundry pile.

Matthew Parker Williams, 37, was wanted on five separate warrants for his arrest worth a combined $6,500, said Lt. Krag Campbell of the JPD in a press release. Police contacted 32-year-old Kayle Deon Hunt, who police say is Williams’ girlfriend, around 10 p.m. Wednesday, at her residence in the Mendenhall Valley. She claimed that there had been no contact with Williams for the past four days, Campbell said.

However, officers noticed some movement in a pile of clothes while Hunt was speaking, Campbell said. Officers identified the man as Williams and arrested him for his warrants, as well as an additional charge of violating conditions of release. Hunt was also arrested for hindering prosecution for aiding a person with a warrant out on them, Campbell said.

Both Hunt and Williams were taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Williams had warrants out for failing to appear in court for charges of vehicle theft, burglary, criminal mischief and violating conditions of release. Williams is the person of interest in a number of other investigations, Campbell said, including the theft of an automobile which was later recovered last week. When the investigations are complete, JPD will forward them to the prosecutor’s office for consideration of further charges, Campbell said.
