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.
The Ketchikan City Council moved quickly through the short list of action items on Thursday’s agenda, and likely would have been done with the meeting in less than 30 minutes, except a new issue was brought to the Council’s attention by several citizens. more
