Arrests Made for Vehicle Theft and Joyriding

Last night just after 11pm dispatch received a call from a resident who recognized a stolen 1997 GMC Sierra. Officers responded and intercepted the vehicle near O'Malley and Lake Otis. 

Three people were inside the vehicle. The driver, Nicholas Philemonoff was arrested for vehicle theft and theft in the second degree. The passangers Christopher Chuckwuk and Zane Roberts were both charged with criminal mischief. 

The criminal mischief charges were made possible by the recent change in Muni Ordinance passed by the Anchorage Assembly Tuesday night.
