Leipfert stated in a news release that the improvised explosive device was secured until members of the United States Army Explosives Ordinance Detail arrived from Anchorage and rendered it safe.
The suspect in the case was identified as Christopher Patterson, 33 years of age. An arrest warrant with $25,000 bail was obtained, charging Patterson with two counts of Assault in the Third Degree, a class C felony and one count of Misconduct Involving Weapons in the Third Degree, also a class C felony.
Officers of the Alaska State Troopers served the warrant and arrested Patterson at 9.5 miles North Tongass Highway on Sunday, November 5th.
Investigation into the case is continuing said Leipfert.
Charges are merely accusations and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
