A Wasilla woman was arrested after being taken down by K9 Blitz on Thursday evening according to AST reports.

At 5:41 pm, troopers responded to a Wasilla residence after receiving reports that a woman, later identified as 39-year-old Kathryn Stanley, “was standing on her front porch shooting a shotgun towards nearby residences,” troopers said. In addition, Stanley was reported to have threatened a neighbor with the weapon.

After responding, an investigation was opened up and negotiations with Stanley was initiated. Negotiations were futile and South Central SERT was activated. 

After SERT arrival, troopers say, “Stanley exited the residence multiple times but refused to comply with any verbal commands while also attempting to dislodge the rescue vehicle on scene.” In the last instance of her exiting the residence, SERT deployed less-lethal measures and K9 Blitz was released.

AST determined that Stanley had committed Misconduct Involving Weapons II and Assault III.

Stanley was apprehended by K9 Blitz and taken into custody by South Central SERT. After being taken to the Mat Su Regional Center, treated for minor injuries, and medically cleared, Stanley was taken to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility where she was remanded on the charges.
