Man on Pre-Trial Supervision after January arrest wanted again
A man the Anchorage Police Department's Investigative Support Unit (ISU) arrested in January is now wanted again.
Matthew Irwin, 37, is one of 10 defendants KTVA followed through the court system after an APD Nixle alert sent out on January 5 announced, "The Investigative Support Unit (ISU) have [sic] taken 10 criminals off the street and sent them to jail in less than 24 hours."
Many of them were out on bail/bond or time served within three to four days of their arrests.
Irwin was arrested on January 4 on a warrant for violating his probation in a vehicle theft case. It was his third arrest for violating probation conditions since November.
Three petitions to revoke his probation filed during November and December of 2017 detail repeated incidents in which he was caught with or tested positive for heroin and meth and failed to appear for court dates and to the probation office.
The DOC confirms he was released on bail again January 15 with ordered pre-trial supervision.
According to online court records, another petition to revoke probation was filed on January 22, and less than 10 days after his release, another warrant was issued for his arrest on January 23.
Court view also shows Irwin failed to appear at a scheduled hearing on February 7.
According to an online inmate locator database, Irwin remains out of custody.
As of last Friday, a DOC spokesperson said there were more than 300 individuals on pretrial supervision throughout the state and 24 outstanding warrants for defendants who violated conditions of pre-trial release.
The names of those defendants with active warrants were: Justin Ching, Phillip Hayman, Maria Garcia, Jyrmayne Canty, Patrick Mora, Matthew Irwin, Asia Blagmon, Jarvis Prince, Robert McGowan, Kelly Peters, Cherise Mullins, Micah Jacoby, Sherry Sampson-Crooms, Justin Harris, Monica Abarca, John Vang, Jason Tungul, Douglas Felix, Simeon Simmonds, Brandon Wallace, Levi Jacobs, Robert Malone, Walter Queenie and Willie Mute.
