A van full of Atka Pride Seafoods employees were in a serious accident Tuesday night in the Western Aleutian village. 

KDLG: A drug dealing charge against 27-year-old Alexandra Angasan has been dismissed by the state’s prosecutor. 

Dillingham Police say they built a solid case based on Angasan allegedly selling a dose of heroin to a police confidential informant back in January. Angasan now lives in Wasilla, and Dillingham Police believe she has trafficked narcotics back into the region on more than one occasion.

KDLG: Early Friday morning, the Bristol Bay Borough Police Department responded to a report of a shooting on a vessel at the Leader Creek boatyard in Naknek.

Randolph Galeshoff, 25, from Anchorage was wounded, but not killed, by what police called a self-inflicted gunshot to the head. Police believe alcohol was a factor, but did not release further details on whether the shooting was intentional or an accident.  

Galeshoff was medevaced to Anchorage, where he was reported to be in "critical" condition Friday afternoon at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage.

KDLG: A Dillingham man caught selling heroin to police through two separate controlled buys pleaded guilty Friday. 27-year-old Adrian Mark has been in custody since his arrest last June.

The prosecutor agreed to consolidate the two charges into one count of attempted second degree misconduct involving a controlled substance in exchange for the guilty plea.

KDLG: Alaska state troopers say they were called for a possible Search and Rescue early Wednesday morning on Lake Aleknagik. Two intoxicated men had gone into the lake and could not be located, according to a report called in to authorities.

While AST was enroute from Dillingham, the younger of the two, an unnamed 15-year-old, was found unharmed. Troopers said he will be charged with underage drinking.

Alaska Wildlife Troopers have a pressed a case against a man they say actually lives in Seattle, Washington, and not Egegik, Alaska.

A concerned spouse in Hawaii triggered a look for her husband’s vessel on Tuesday.
