3 men posing as APD break-in to apartment
Anchorage Police say three men posing as officers forced their way into someone's home in an attempt to steal their pets.
Monday morning at 5:41, APD was notified of shots fired in the 200 block of East 12th Avenue.
APD's initial investigation found that three men posing as APD officers forced their way into an apartment, claiming they were there to rescue a dog that had been reported stolen.
MJ Thim, APD spokesperson, says the suspects' attempt to steal one of the dogs inside the home was unsuccessful.
When officers arrived, the suspects fled, Thim says.
Witness and victim descriptions of the suspects helped officers nab one of the suspects, 37-year-old Brant Marshall, in the 1300 block of Ingra Street. The other two suspects, who were last seen in the 1200 block of Ingra Street, were able to evade officers.
Thim says the two suspects at large were last seen wearing black clothing and ski masks.
No one was injured during the incident, and APD says no dog had been reported stolen.
Marshall is charged with third-degree assault, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and failure to register as a sex offender.
