Original:
On Tuesday, November 1, 2016 police were contacted by a 19-year- old victim who reported that he had been kidnapped. Police met with the victim and launched an investigation. As a result of the investigation this is what police have found:
 
On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, an adult male victim was invited by an acquaintance, 18-year-old Dela White, to meet downtown at the Park Strip to have coffee.  At approximately 11:30 AM, while walking around the strip near 10th Avenue with White, the victim was approached by 28-year-old Christopher Goenett who held a knife to the victim and forced him into a vehicle.  Also in the vehicle was 28-year-old Tyrun Reynolds. Goenett and Reynolds took the victim’s keys, cell phone, and wallet.  Goenett and Reynolds drove the victim to a nearby ATM and withdrew money from the victim’s account after forcing the victim to provide his PIN.
 
Afterwards the victim was driven back to his own vehicle.  The victim was placed into his own car where he was then duct-taped and handcuffed.  Reynolds and 34-year-old Danerin Curtindale drove the victim to the victim’s Eagle River residence.  Reynolds and Curtindale burglarized the victim’s home and then drove back into Anchorage, in the victim’s car, with the victim.  The victim was dropped off unharmed near C Street and Dowling.  The victim flagged down a bicyclist for help.  The victim contacted police just before 4:00 p.m.
 
During the course of the investigation, detectives searched a home on the 200 block of E 12th Avenue where over 500 stolen items (valued at more than $100,000) were recovered.  Some of the items were taken from the Eagle River residence but most were stolen in unrelated thefts, burglaries, and robberies. It appeared that many of the items were likely stolen from vehicles and during the vehicle break-ins, the suspects would steal the garage door opener as well as the vehicle registration to later burglarize the home. APD Property Detectives are currently combing through all of the seized items. So far, ten owners have been identified and more are expected. 
 
Four suspects are currently in custody. Dela White, who is suspected of planning and coordinating the kidnapping and Eagle River burglary, has been charged with Kidnapping.  Christopher Goenett has been charged with Kidnapping, Assault III, and Robbery I.  Tyrun Reynolds and Danerin Curtindale have both been charged with Assault III, Kidnapping, Robbery I, and Burglary I.
 
Police believe a fourth male was involved.  Police are still working on identifying him.  As of now, the details regarding the fourth male’s identifiers and exact involvement are not being released.
 
Anchorage Police would like to remind citizens that it’s imperative they write down the serial numbers of all property they own, and to report to police when items have been stolen.  Those actions are required in order for police to identify and return stolen items when they’ve been recovered.  Stolen property reports may be completed online at www.muni.org/police or by calling APD Records at 786-8600.
