The Public Safety Report is compiled from criminal complaints filed in state and federal courts, as well as some police blotter information, trooper dispatches, fire department reports and interviews with public safety officials. Individuals named as arrested and/or charged with crimes in this report are presumed innocent until proved guilty in a court of law.

 

Assault

• Tupaarnaq Rosing Olsen Brower, 28, of Fairbanks, was charged with fourth-degree assault and violating conditions of release Nov. 28 for allegedly punching, slapping and hitting her boyfriend after he confronted her about being intoxicated. The man’s face was red and he had teeth marks on his neck, according to charging documents.

• Jermaine Albert Lockwood, 36, of Stebbins, was charged with fourth-degree assault and two counts of violating conditions of his release Nov. 30 after Alaska State Troopers responded to a disturbance at a Howland Road home. Lockwood’s sister told troopers that her brother grabbed her face and scratched her while a group of people were drinking at his wife’s and his new trailer. Lockwood and his wife were found lying on a bedroom floor with an opened bottle of Monarch vodka. A records check showed Lockwood was not supposed to be within 500 feet of his wife and is not allowed to possess alcohol, according to charging documents. 

 

DUI

Melony Ann Edwards, 33, of Salcha, was charged with driving under the influence Nov. 21 after University of Alaska Fairbanks police stopped her for weaving on Ballaine Road. Edwards admitted drinking one shot of Rich & Rare apple whiskey, failed field sobriety tests and registered a breath-alcohol content of 0.092, according to charging documents. 

 

Multiple charges 

• Eleanor Sarah Dorothy Guidry, 29, of North Pole, was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of fifth-degree criminal mischief Nov. 27 after her step-father called Alaska State Troopers to report she was unable to care for herself because she was detoxing from methamphetamines, hallucinating, breaking household items and taking off her clothes. 

• Alex Trenton Beltz, 33, of Anchorage, was charged with two counts of fifth-degree drugs misconduct, first-degree promoting contraband and making a false report Nov. 29 after Fairbanks police responded to a report of people smoking drugs behind a Raven Estates apartment building. Police contacted Beltz and two other two other men inside the building. Beltz walked away and entered an apartment that was not his, according to charges. The tenants of the apartment told police they did not know Beltz and wanted him removed. Police found a syringe loaded with liquid heroin mixed with blood in Beltz’s pants pocket. A records check showed Beltz was wanted on a $5,000 warrant for absconding from his probation on another case. Officers at Fairbanks Correctional Center found several strips of buprenorphine and nalaxone — a combination medicine used to treat opioid addiction — in Beltz’s body during a cavity search.
