Fifth suspect sought in 2016 Anchorage kidnapping, robbery
Anchorage police are asking for your help to find a man who is identified as a fifth suspect in a kidnapping from nearly a year ago, which led investigators to a home containing roughly $100,000 in stolen goods.
Court records show Zarin Ryan Freeman, 31, charged with kidnapping, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, armed robbery, assault, theft and vehicle theft. He joins Dela White, 19, Christopher Goenett, 28, Tyrun Reynolds, 29, and Danerin Curtindale, 35, who also face various kidnapping and robbery charges in the November 2016 case.
Police had said at the time that a fifth man was sought in the case, but that he hadn’t yet been identified.
According to police, the victim – a 19-year-old Eagle River man – was having coffee with White and another female in downtown Anchorage when he was asked to visit the Park Strip. Goenett then allegedly forced the victim at knifepoint into a vehicle also containing Reynolds, where they forced him to give up the PIN for his bank account. A surveillance video recorded the men withdrawing about $380 from the account at an ATM.
Reynolds and Curtindale, police said, then drove the victim to his family’s Eagle River home, which they then burglarized before dropping him off unhurt in Anchorage. Investigators tracking purchases made by the suspects raided an East 12th Avenue home in Anchorage, where they found more than 500 stolen items valued at more than $100,000.
Freeman stands 6 feet, 5 inches tall according to police, who say he weighs about 183 pounds and has blue eyes and blond hair. Anyone who sees him, or has information on his whereabouts, is asked to call dispatchers at (907) 786-8900 or contact Anchorage Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP or through its website.
