Suspected heroin trafficker wanted by APD
Anchorage Police are asking for your help in locating a wanted man.
Christian Young has multiple outstanding warrants for his arrest, APD says, including first-degree robbery, impersonating an officer, interfering with official proceeding, failure to remand on second-degree robbery and probation violations.
Young is described as standing 6-feet tall, weighing 185 pounds and having brown hair and green eyes. APD says Young has a crescent-shaped scar on the right side of his chin.
In documents filed to support a petition to revoke probation, KTVA learned Young has a long history of run-ins with law enforcement.
In October of 2015, Young was sentenced to 36 months with 24 suspended on the charge of second-degree robbery. As a result, he was placed on three years probation.
In May of 2016, Young was arrested for assault-recklessly causing injury for allegedly battering his girlfriend while they were driving down the street. Later that month, a petition to revoke probation was filed after probation officers found Young failed to accurately report his address. In June, July and August, Young failed to meet with his probation officer, as was a term of his probation, according to documents.
On June 20, 2016, a woman reported Young as the person who robbed her at gunpoint inside of a hotel room, prompting a first-degree robbery charge. The petition refers to the criminal complaint and says Young was also in possession of a police-style badge and handcuffs at the time of that robbery. "During the commission of this new offense, he appeared to be impersonating a peace officer," the probation officer wrote in an affidavit.
Then, on September 2, Young attempted to board a plane in Dillingham using a fake name. Police responded as they say he was "already suspected of trafficking heroin between Dillingham and Anchorage", however, Young fled the airport. The petition states Young had not received permission to leave his assigned region.
After a days-long manhunt, Young was arrested and found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia, including a razor blade with brown residue and two glass pipes, the amended probation officer recommendation alleges.
In the affidavit, the probation officer wrote "the defendant has entrenched himself in the drug community in Anchorage. Indeed, the defendant has rubbed shoulders with some of the most notorious and notable drug distributors and users in this community."
In July of this year, APD was called to the home of Young's ex-girlfriend after she reported to police he was throwing objects, according to the petition to revoke probation; the woman reported that Young was searching for jewelry he planned to sell to buy drugs. Officers attempted to contact Young but he fled and APD was unable to apprehend him, the documents state.
Since being released on bail on March 6, Young had not been residing with his sister, as was reported to the court and his probation officer, Young's sister told police.
The petition continues by alleging that Young failed to report to his probation officer on August 1; on August 2, Young reported and admitted to knowingly missing his office visit and was remanded on his active warrant.
While being booked into jail, authorities reported finding 13.5 ounces of heroin in Young's rectum. The documents allege Young reported to his PO that day in an effort to smuggle drugs into the jail.
Police ask anyone with information on his whereabouts to give them a call, though, they warn citizens to not try and approach Young.
