Wasilla Man Arrested for November 17th Burglary

Alaska State Troopers, with the BHP,  while on patrol, pulled over a vehicle in a traffic stop at 1:32 pm on Saturday only to catch a burglar that they had been looking for.

During the interview, Ashburn would admit to the burglary and stealing approximately $4,750 worth of music equipment.

Ashburn was transported to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility where he was remanded for the arrest warrrant as well as additional charges of Burglary and Theft and his bail was set at $10,000.
