Juneau Police are searching for a man who allegedly acted disorderly and vandalized the Best Western Hotel in the Mendenhall Valley last month.
A screen shot of the man captured by the hotel’s security camera was posted to JPD’s website Thursday. His back is to the camera, but you can see the profile of his face. He appears to have black hair and a mustache or goatee. He’s wearing a red sweatshirt with a hood, and a white backpack.
Sergeant Paul Hatch says officers don’t know the man, and are asking for the public’s help in tracking him down.
“[On] November 29th, he was hanging around the hotel, the Best Western, and was acting disorderly in there, and threatening toward one of the clerks, and also poured hot chocolate all over their phone system that caused a bunch of damage to that,” Hatch said. “So we’re just trying to figure out who the guy is, so we can investigate that.”
Hatch says the phone system sustained about $1,500 dollars in damage.
He says anyone who knows the man should contact JPD at 586-0600, or online at juneaucrimeline.com.
