A 36-year-old Ketchikan man was arrested and charged with first-degree vehicle theft, criminal trespass and fourth-degree theft late Saturday night.
According to the online Alaska State Troopers dispatch report, Paul Jackson was contacted after he allegedly abandoned the stolen vehicle at the end of Old Ward Lake Road, and attempted to flee on a bicycle.
Troopers say Jackson took the vehicle from a residence on Heneghan Street and then tried to abandon it after seeing troopers parked near Mile 6 North Tongass Highway.
Troopers say Jackson had outstanding warrants on prior charges, and allegedly had taken items from the stolen vehicle. He had his first court hearing Sunday. Bail was set at $20,000.
