Search for wanted man in Juneau

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) Authorities are on the lookout for a Fairbanks man they say fled on foot from a traffic stop Sunday.

    Alaska Wildlife Troopers said they stopped a Dodge Ram pickup on Hospital Drive for traffic violations Sunday.  They report two of the passengers in the truck were wanted on warrants.  Desiree Littlefield, 23, of Juneau, was wanted for two warrants for charges of criminal trespass.  Jeremy Pittser, 39, of Fairbanks was wanted on a warrant out of Fairbanks for third degree theft.  Troopers reported that Pittser fled on foot during the traffic stop. 

    Troopers also reported that Pittser has a habit of running from police.  Juneau Police contacted him on October 21 and  he also ran from that contact.  Troopers arrested the driver of the vehicle, a 33 year old Juneau woman, on a charge of hindering prosecutions in the second degree, a misdemeanor.  Troopers allege the woman was notified that Mr. Pittser had a warrant for his arrest October 21st and had failed to notify them.  She was later released on her own recognizance.  Littlefield was held at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center on $100 bail.

    JPD Officers and Troopers were unable to locate Pittser in the area.  Anyone who has information on Pittser's whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Alaska State Troopers in Juneau at 907-465-4000, or the Juneau Police Department at 907-586-0600.
