Alleged fugitive arrested on Prince of Wales Island

Alaska State Troopers report that at about 9:15 Wednesday morning, Troopers and U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement helped the U.S. Marshal service arrest 46-year-old Paul Howard Koberger of North Carolina.

Koberger was wanted on an outstanding warrant from North Carolina. Troopers report that the warrant was in connection with alleged felony sexual offenses involving a child.

Koberger was taken to the Craig Police Department jail, where he was held pending arraignment and transport.
