Nikiski man charged with weapon misconduct, theft

NIKISKI (AP) — A 41-year-old Nikiski man cited for illegally shooting a cow moose has been indicted on weapons misconduct and theft charges.

 

James Jackson told Alaska Wildlife Troopers that he killed the moose Sept. 24 to protect his dog.

Troopers say their investigation revealed the dog was inside Jackson's home when the moose was shot.

They say their follow-up investigation revealed Jackson is a convicted felon banned from possessing a gun, and that he and his wife acknowledged buying a stolen handgun from Jackson's cousin.

Jackson also was charged with not immediately revealing he was carrying a concealed handgun as he talked to a trooper.

He is in Wildwood Correctional Center.

A Kenai grand jury last week also indicted Jackson's wife on a theft charge connected to receiving a stolen firearm.
