Alaska State Troopers reported on Thursday that they had received information on a Washington resident in Kodiak wanted on an extraditable warrant out of that state.

42-year-old Michael Sholund was in community custody in the state of Washington after his guilty plea for theft of firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm, and two counts of second degree assault with a deadly weapon.

Sholund had fired a firearm in the direction of a woman and her 12-year-old son after being assaulted at her residence. The firearm he used had been stolen from his brother, who pursued the theft charges.

After serving his 22-month sentence, Sholund was required to serve another year and a half in community custody, which required him to check in and also not leave the area for the duration of his sentence.

Sholund, who had been fishing in Alaska prior to the incident in Washington, returned here earlier this year and began fishing again out of Kodiak

After receiving information of Sholund’s whereabouts, troopers, with the assistance of the Kodiak Police Department, went to 2987 Spruce Cape Road. When they arrived at that location, they contacted Sholund on the porch of the residence and placed him under arrest on the extraditable warrant.

Sholund was transported to the Kodiak Jail where he was held without bail.
