Kenai police and Alaska State Troopers arrested a mother and son Tuesday in connection with an ongoing investigation into a number of area burglaries.
According to Kenai police Lt. Kim Wannamaker, the arrests took place around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday after information came into the department leading police to a residence on Missing Link Road off of Arc Lake Loop south of Soldotna.
"As a result of investigative efforts and anonymous tips, we served a search warrant on a residence and property on Arc Lake Loop and recovered property that had been stolen in Kenai and Soldotna," Wannamaker said.
The two people arrested, Dylan R. Rink, 19, and Tana Rosin, 47, of Soldotna were arrested on existing failure to appear warrants for unrelated charges. According to police, Rink is Tana Rosin's son.
When police arrived at the property, they found a number of items computers, electronics and tools that have led them to believe the duo may be responsible for a number of burglaries in the area. Whether further charges will be filed, or if there could be other people involved in the case, is still under investigation.
"That is something we're looking into," Wannamaker said.
Police are being cautious about giving out specific information about the stolen items located on the property because their investigation is still open.
However, Wannamaker said some of the items recovered have been identified by their original owners.
The tips leading police to the residence on Missing Link came in to Kenai police. Trooper Mark Pearson with the Soldotna trooper post said because the arrests were made outside city limits and because troopers also have been investigating a number of burglaries in the area troopers were brought in on the case, as well.
"We had cases tied to the parties involved, so we helped out," Pearson said.
Both Kenai police and troopers are continuing to investigate the case.
