ANCHORAGE (KTUU) – The Anchorage Police Department has arrested a suspect for allegedly stealing $50,000 worth of Alaska Native art and artifacts from Duane’s Antique Market.

APD says 60-year-old Timothy P. Hayes was caught with “multiple Native artifacts both on his person and in the 1999 green Ford Contour he was driving.”

He was remanded at the Anchorage Jail on charges of second-degree burglary, first-degree theft, and third-degree criminal mischief.

Police say they responded to the 5700-block of Point Woronzof just before midnight Saturday and met with Airport Police, who had responded: “to a welfare check request regarding an older male asking for gas money.”

Hayes allegedly even had a large ivory tusk “sticking out from underneath a blanket in the back seat.”
