Six people arrested during three separate stolen vehicle investigations

Case 19-213:
A 2001 blue Chevy Astro Van was reported as stolen to APD on January 2, 2019.  The vehicle was parked at the Dimond Center when it was taken.
At 10:01 AM on January 5th a patrol officer saw the unoccupied stolen vehicle parked in a residential driveway on the 6800-block of E 12th Avenue. Officers contacted an adult male and female inside the home; they were transported to the Anchorage Police Department for questioning. 
The male, 39-year-old Daniel J. Blomburg, was ultimately remanded at the Anchorage Jail on the charges of Vehicle Theft I and Theft II.  He was additionally cited for driving on a revoked license.  The female was not charged.
Case 19-791 and 19-812:
At 8:44 PM on January 6, 2019, a 1997 blue Ford F350 was stolen from the Home Depot parking lot on Tudor.  The vehicle was unoccupied and running with the keys inside when it was taken.
Just over an hour later, at 9:54 PM, a swing shift officer saw the vehicle being driven in the area of W 40th Avenue and C Street; it was occupied four times.  After backup units arrived, a traffic stop was conducted on the truck at Tudor and C Street.  Patrol vehicles blocked the stolen truck in at which time one of the passengers jumped from the vehicle and ran on foot.  The other three occupants were detained at the scene.
The passenger who ran, 29-year-old Gabriel L. Seton JR, was caught by officers on the 300-block of W Tudor Road.  During the pat search a lock pick kit was found on his person.  All four individuals were transported to the Anchorage Police Department for questioning by Detectives.
The driver, 34-year-old Nathanael C. Albright, was remanded at the Anchorage Jail on the charges of Vehicle Theft I, Theft II, and Violate Conditions of Release.
One of the passengers, 29-year-old Amanda N. Aslakson, was remanded at the Anchorage Jail on an outstanding warrant.
Seton was remanded at the Anchorage Jail on an existing felony warrant.  He was further charged with Criminal Mischief V – Riding in a Stolen Vehicle, Resisting, Possessing Burglary Tools, and Violate Conditions of Release for a Felony.
The fourth occupant was not charged.
Case 19-424, 19-835, 19-1029, and 19-1030:
At 8:20 PM on January 3, 2019, a 2005 brown Jeep Cherokee was reported as stolen to APD. The vehicle was unoccupied, unlocked, and running with the keys inside when it was stolen from the 1000-block of W 30th Avenue.
At 9:03 AM on January 7th a citizen called APD Dispatch to report the theft of the license plates from their 2005 Green Jeep Grand Cherokee.  It is unknown where the vehicle was parked when the plates were taken.
At 3:51 PM on January 8th APD received information that an unoccupied brown Jeep was parked in the Carrs Muldoon parking lot with a license plate on it that did not belong.  Also on scene was an undercover Alaska State Trooper.  APD officers responded and blocked the vehicle in.  A computer check revealed the Jeep had been reported as stolen five days prior and the rear license plate displayed on the Jeep had been reported as stolen the day before.
The Trooper had witnessed two people get out of the stolen vehicle prior to APD’s arrival.  With the Trooper’s help, an APD officer located the female suspect walking westbound on Northern Lights from Carrs.  After making contact with the woman, identified as 29-year-old Virginia L. Kniseley, a computer check verified she had a felony warrant for her arrest. 
The male suspect, 31-year-old Michael M. Harris, was found walking in the area of Eastbrook Drive and Hillbrook Circle.  A computer check revealed that he too had an outstanding warrant.  Both Kniseley and Harris were remanded at the Anchorage Jail on those warrants.
