Western Arctic National Parklands

National Park News

The Kotzebue office of Western Arctic National Parklands was broken into on Saturday, February 25th. The NPS office space, which is leased from a native corporation, is located within the Eskimo Building along with several other organizations. The NPS office was entered through an unsecured exterior door which provided access to the NPS office interior door. Although the interior door was locked, the thieves were able to pry it open. A government safe containing $1,730 in cash, 500 blank third party draft checks, NPS uniform badges, vehicle titles, property stickers, master keys to government facilities and cell phones was stolen. Government owned digital cameras and personal property were also stolen. Shortly after the Kotzebue Police Department began their investigation, two juveniles were located with the government and personal property. Though the juveniles were able to pry the safe open, all government and personal property was accounted for. The only loss was $10 in change that belonged to the employee association. The case is being handled by the Kotzebue Police Department and the juveniles will be prosecuted through Alaska?s juvenile justice system.
