Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport Police and Fire Department News

We wish all a happy and safe Memorial Weekend with family and friends, and we remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our Country. Here are a few from Alaska....

Welcome back Ben! Anchorage Firefighter/Paramedic Ben Schultz returned today at TSAIA. His Family, friends and brothers and sisters from AFD and the Anchorage Airport Police and Fire are happy to see him home!

Summer is around the corner and with it increased aircraft traffic to enjoy this great State. We will be ready! We have had a couple of aircraft incidents recently as a reminder of the season. With luck and skill the pilots involved have walked away. Please be safe out there when flying.

Last week, TSAIA sponsored another successful Human Trafficking training session. Following that, Emergency Services Dispatcher Smith joined Jeff Brodsky of Joy International on Saturday for a barefoot mile to bring awareness to Human Trafficking in Alaska and throughout the world. #barefootmile

A great show of force for the Law Enforcement Torch Run this weekend. Glad to see everyone out there for such a great cause. Thanks to our CBP brothers for their support. Thanks also for our Dispatch and I.T. representation! Already looking forward to next year!

Strength, Perseverance, and a Huge Smile. That defines "Qiauna", so it was an easy decision to walk with her during the Anchorage MS Walk today. 4 miles in full turnouts and air packs!! Happy to support "Team Q".

Alaska is a beautiful place and has some of the best night time Moon phases in the world for viewing. There is the Cresent Moon, the Micro Moon, the Half Moon, the Blue Moon, the Super Moon to name a few. There is also the Full Moon and when in the sky it is beautiful. When done by citizens not so much, especially in public. Like the subject that follows.... Fugitive from Justice/Arrest Warant Served- On 5/10/18 at approximately 1657 hrs, Airport Police responded to the B Concourse for a citizen "mooning" other travelers. Through the investigation it was found that the suspect did have an extraditable warrant out of Minnesota. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Anchorage Jail and will be extradited. "Mooning" others could get you a criminal charge of Disorderly Conduct, AS11.61.110(a)(7) or Harrassment 2nd, AS11.61.120(a)(1). Please keep your pants on when traveling and report any suspicious activity.

Anchorage Airport Firefighter Trainees conducting their performance evaluations to be a Firefighter I today. The training was performed at the Station 2 Training Facility. All were successful! They will continue on to Firefighter II and then Aircraft Rescue Firefighter (ARFF) certifications for the State of Alaska.

It was great to meet this fine family and show them around Station 1!

We will see you out there!

(Originally posted from APD Nixle) Community: From the DA's Office: Three Individuals Charged for Roles in Anchorage Mail Theft Ring; Indictment Alleges Over 500 Victims FROM THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE April 27, 2018 (ANCHORAGE, Alaska) – U.S. Attorney Bryan Schroder announced that three Anchorage residents have been charged in an indictment alleging they conspired to obtain checks stolen from the mail, primarily credit card convenience checks, and then negotiated the stolen checks at different banks in Anchorage using stolen identities and bank accounts associated with the stolen identities. Amber Hecker, 34, Ronald Hecker, 35, and Richard Hoglin, 34, all of Anchorage, were charged in a 22-count indictment that includes charges of conspiracy, bank fraud, possession of stolen mail, and aggravated identity theft. According to the indictment, from April 2017 to April 2018, Amber Hecker, Ronald Hecker, and Richard Hoglin, negotiated checks stolen from the mail that were falsely altered and forged. The stolen checks were falsely made out to make the payee a separate stolen identity that was used by the defendants to negotiate the stolen checks. The defendants also used bank accounts associated with the stolen identities to negotiate the stolen and forged checks. It is further alleged that the defendants possessed mail stolen from over 500 victims, including financial records, social security cards, identification cards, and credit cards. Amber Hecker and Ronald Hecker are scheduled to appear in court today at 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., respectively, at the Federal Courthouse. Representatives from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Anchorage Police Department, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and Anchorage Airport Police will be present. The law provides for a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a fine of $1 million, or both. Under federal sentencing statutes, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendants. The Anchorage Police Department and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, along with the Anchorage Airport Police, conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Aunnie Steward. An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
