Troopers responded to the 9 am call in Nikiski and contacted the driver of the van. He was identified as 50-year-old Norman Neil Sylvester.
The trooper’s investigation at the scene would find that Sylvester had failed to register as a sex offender, and have failed to do so repeatedly. Troopers would consequently arrest him and would find him in possession of a handgun as a felon and was also found to be in possession of a scheduled drug.
