Togiak Man Charged with Felony Importation of Alcohol

Sep 30, 2013

DILLINGHAM:   Ross Greenley, 27, of Togiak, was arrested Saturday at the Dillingham Airport and has been charged with felony importation. 

Authorities say Greenley was preparing to board a flight back to Togiak, and in boxes he was transporting were 12 bottles of R&R whiskey, and three bottles of Burnett’s vodka, all of which was presumably for sale in the dry village.

In total there were 11.25 liters of alcohol in Greenley’s luggage for the flight; after 10.5 liters state statute requires the importation be charged as a felony.

Greenley has one prior conviction for importation, and other prior convictions for coercion, criminal trespass, and indecent exposure on his record.

He was arraigned Sunday in Dillingham. Bail was set at $2,500.
