Man causes mayhem at Kenai gas station

Posted: January 1, 2013 - 4:47pm  |  Updated: January 2, 2013 - 11:56am

A 39 year-old-man was arrested after destroying items at the Kenai Holiday gas station while drunk, according to an affidavit filed by Kenai Police.

On Dec. 21, 2012, Doyle Miller allegedly entered the gas station and attempted to pay for some items but did not have enough money. He stole cookies and left the store. Within minutes, the gas station clerk told police, Miller returned and ate two hot dogs.

The clerk advised Miller he needed to pay for the items. Then, Miller became angry and threw and broke items inside the gas station. He broke a credit card machine, a cash register, a radio and many display items on the counter, according to the affidavit.

Miller then fled the store. Kenai police caught up with Miller at the McDonald’s parking lot, a short distance from the gas station. Miller appeared “extremely intoxicated.” He allegedly told police there was an issue at the gas station but did not elaborate. He was arrested and taken to Wildwood Pretrial Facility.

The Kenai District Attorney’s office indicted Miller on charges of third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree burglary, both class C felonies, according to a Dec. 28, 2012 indictment. Two misdemeanor charges, fourth-degree assault and fourth-degree theft, have since been added.

The gas station closed until the case register was replaced, according to the affidavit.

McGlasson is this guy in a few years

I first started to think this drunk at the gas station was being overcharged, then I read all the comments on McGlasson and rethought the topic. Somebody needs to get this guys attention maybe put them in the same cell.

Prophecy

BRD, your post sounds like a WoW prophecy. I think a more accurate post would read "This could be Jed ... or any of our other drinking kids in a few years." No one is immune to addiction. Some are less likely, but no one is immune! However, paths can be changed.

Sam Von

You are correct on the " this could be Jed " but not !
Here would be a man at the age of 39 intoxicated and while helping himself to a hot dog or two, decides to assault a credit card machine and put people in fear and tare the store up, GOOD JOB PUNK !! to bad I wasn't there ! tough guy attacking a credit card machine and a candy rack.
I'll just bet this fine fella has a history with alcohol and law enforcement, this Sam Von would be the progressive part of the disease, 39 years old in and out of jail, for what ? who knows, and I'm sure alcohol was related in most of his cases, do I think there's a history ? YES ! do I think he just started drinking ? NO ! is it my business ? NO ! it is my business when he's in a store putting the clerk and other people in fear.
I wonder if assaulting a credit card machine would be a domestic violence ? I hope all who know him are proud !!

Now lets see what the DA does

Now lets see what the DA does with this case. I get mad when I read the paper and see time after time the same names in the criminal reports with case after case being dismissed.

Some of these derelicts have been in the court reports off and on for over 20 years!

The DA's office needs to quit dismissing so many cases because of their "excuse" we are too busy. Too busy!!!!

Get off their butts and start prosecuting these derelicts. Will it always lead to rehab for them? No, but it will prevent victims while they are in jail.

Alcoholism

He probably doesn't remember doing it. Blackout behavior happens after years of alcohol abuse and this guy has obviously had some practice. The video from Holiday will be used as evidence and he'll be convicted. Whether or not he gets help for his addiction is another issue. Hopefully the judge will order treatment at his cost. He needs to sit in a jail cell and think about his actions, pay for the damage, and hopefully learn something.

Alcoholism

He will remember what he did I'm sure, will he care ? Doubt it !
like Norseman says in and out of jail, obviously a month here and there hasn't helped, a lengthy sentence probably wouldn't work either, ordered treatment by the judge AT HIS COST !
if he's assaulted a credit card machine I would think those behaviors would show the DA that he might just be an alcoholic, and maybe have potential of violence, who knows though with the DA, ( example ) fine citizens like William Brewer never seemed to do any time or very little ! finally after all these years he's in jail where he belongs, and not able to harm the community,

I stand corrected, perhaps he might have trouble remembering the assault on the credit card machine and candy rack.
At the age of 39, and acting like he is, tells me that he's in and out of jail, and has non intentions on stopping, perhaps he'e pickled !
He will be up for a bail review and the DA will I hope keep him in jail, considering the facts ! and where he wont be able to have the liberty to drink and harm anyone !
At the age of 39, and acting the way he is, Is not acceptable, being forced to attend treatment wont work either if he doesn't want the help, sitting in jail for awhile might just dry him out,
Hopefully he receives more than just a disorderly conduct !

FREE Room & Board

Winter brings out many people that do such things if they are down & out so they will get FREE Room & Board. Not saying that this is the case but, it is one of the major problems from people not being able to provide for themselves and have ran out of options. As we go further OFF the cliff and economic dispare hits more people we will se a major rise in crimes of violence against all sorts of people. No fear of proper judgments against evil hearts has brought us to this place as a nation, society, state, as well as local community.
I don't know what the answer is, but i do know it's gonna get worse as we go foreward and just the local, state news show this to be true with 3 armed robberies one night in anchorage by the same person it looks like. Lock & Load folks the rough ride is starting, as a moral issue, as well as OUR soveriegn manditory right we must stand against this evil spread and protect family, friends or property from those that would steal and even kill to take whats not theirs. Fight or Flight are the only choices against evils spread.
What a life with everything for FREE, just because they broke the laws against society and are punished with FREE STUFF. Chain gangs with HARD LABOR or manufacturing work no matter the weather would cause many to stop and think about the Free stuff when it's no longer FREE and payment demanded for their keeping which WE ALL PAY FOR
What a life for many, as the records show with OVER crowded jails and prisons that cost us what $65,000 a year per person in prisons.

RE : Free room and Board

Rightly so Sir Watchman ! Here's one for yah ! 2 years ago I had taken a trip to Michigan which would be where I had left from in 1982, I hadn't been back since, I woke in the morning walked out side and It was truly like a ghost town, empty house's all the way down the street, Foreclosure papers in all the doors, I had never seen anything like it in my life.
3 bed , bath in a half homes on 1/2 acre plus ranging from $ 20,000 to $ 40,000, really nice homes to boot ! poverty all over, no work, crime rate souring, it was something Watchman and very concerning.
Living in Alaska is a gift compared to what really has taken place there and many other states across the country, which I'm sure your aware of, witnessing it was really something,
returning back here I had watched yet another tragedy take place in the waters outside of Mexico I believe, an oil spill with a tanker, and no response from our Government or very little, while watching the news on the spill they showed a seal pup bobbing up and down through the spill gasping for air and next to its dead mother, it had taken me back to the vacant houses and families with no homes walking the streets, that I witnessed, people starving and no homes, no jobs, no food, crime was getting worst and a government there concerned. Things aren't good anywhere !
You speak of bad times coming ! what the Hell is really going on and what are we really gonna be able to do, Accept be right with the man above.
Things are getting pretty weird in this world and feel fortunate to be able to live here, and not the lower 48.

Hearts of men

Motley
"But realize this, in the last days difficult times shall come.
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parent, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious, gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherious, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied it's power; and avoid such men(women) as these." 2 Tim. 3:1-5.

That just about explains it all, the condition we now find ourselves in here at the End of the Age concerning the condition of mankinds heart, the root of all evil, does it not?
"The heart is desperatly wicked, who can know it?"
Who can heal it is the most important question of all, is it not?
