Traffic stop nabs man sought in Kenai-area burglaries
A 27-year-old man wanted on dozens of counts in connection with burglaries at seasonal properties near Kenai last winter was arrested Saturday by Alaska State Troopers.
Soldotna resident David L. Frost faces 16 counts of burglary, 14 counts of criminal mischief, eight counts of theft and two counts of vehicle theft, troopers wrote in an online dispatch.
Law enforcement began investigating reports of the burglaries, in the Big Eddy area, between October and February.
Troopers and Kenai police subsequently obtained a search warrant for another Kenai home, where they found some of the property stolen in the burglaries. In addition, a vehicle taken in one of the burglaries was found at another residence in the area.
After troopers identified Frost as a suspect in the initial burglaries, as well as a Kenai theft and a commercial burglary in Nikiski, court records show a $25,000 warrant was issued June 4 for his arrest.
“[At about 10:50 p.m. Saturday], AST conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Frost in Kenai,” troopers wrote. “Frost was arrested on the outstanding warrant and additionally found to be in possession of a controlled substance.”
Troopers arrested Frost on the warrant, as well as a charge of misconduct involving controlled substances stemming from the traffic stop. He was held at the Wildwood Pretrial Facility, where a statewide inmate database showed him still in custody Monday.
