Two Men Cited, Six Stolen Firearms Seized at KRPUA Early Monday Morning

Alaska State Troopers report that they seized six firearms that were reported stolen after responding to a report that several people were “firing numerous weapons near where people were fishing” in the Jim Creek area of the Knik River Public Use Area early Monday morning.

When troopers responded to the area at 3 am on Monday morning, they reported that they heard well over 100 shots fired before making contact with the group. As they were making contact, one suspect ran off into the woods, and subsequently was not identified.

Troopers did make contact with two men and two women at the location. Troopers also observed 20 firearms at the scene, six of which were identified as stolen out of Anchorage. AST said the stolen firearms recovered included “a .308 AR style rifle, a revolver and four handguns of various makes and models.”[xyz-ihs snippet=”Adversal-468×60”]

The two men that remained at the scene were identified as 27-year-old William J Lundy and 31-year-old Chasly D Lykins, both of Anchorage. Both men were issued citations for “shooting within the KRPUA.”

Two women were also at the scene but were not cited as troopers did not observe them shooting firearms at the scene.

Additional charges of theft may be leveled at the two men at a future date as a case rreport has been forwarded to the Palmer District Attorney’s office.
