Troopers arrest alleged stowaway

Two men riding on the Alaska Marine Highway ferry Taku were arrested in Ketchikan on Wednesday after the ferry docked, according to Alaska State Troopers.

Troopers were called by crew members who reported they had found a stowaway after the ship left Juneau. According to troopers, Raymond Grenberg of Juneau allegedly hid in a Dodge truck, driven by Timothy Webb, also of Juneau.

Both men were taken into custody and sent to the Ketchikan Correctional Center on charges of third-degree theft, second-degree criminal trespass, and aiding and abetting.
