Troopers hold man on warrant after North Pole lockdown
Alaska State Troopers say a man was taken into custody in North Pole, after an incident that briefly prompted troopers to ask that some locals “stay inside and lock their doors” Friday morning.
Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said in an email that the person being held. identified in an online dispatch Friday afternoon as 34-year-old North Pole resident Marvin Maxie, was reportedly "brandishing a firearm at traffic."
According to the dispatch, Maxie had "secured the firearm" prior to troopers' arrival.
"Investigation revealed that Maxie had a $100 outstanding warrant but no other crimes were determined to have occurred at this time," troopers wrote.
Maxie was remanded to the Fairbanks Correctional Center on the warrant.
An alert was sent shortly before 9 a.m. advising residents in the area of Doughchee Avenue and Statehood Street to stay indoors, shortly before the situation was resolved.
