The mother of a woman arrested at a residence on Missing Link Road south of Soldotna says her daughter knew noting about any of the alleged stolen property that was located in her daughter’s home.
“I know my daughter did not know about any of this stuff,” Grace Gordon said Thursday.
Gordon is the mother of Tana Rosin, 47, who was arrested along with her son, Dylan Rink, 19, on Tuesday.
Police arrested the two at their home after getting a tip that there was stolen property there. At the time of the initial investigation, both Rink and Rosin were arrested on warrants unrelated to the burglary investigation.
Rink also was arrested on a charge of having no valid operator’s license after officers saw him driving.
However, only Rink was taken into custody by Kenai police, who are spearheading the burglary investigation. Rosin was taken into custody by Alaska State Troopers and released a short time later.
On Thursday, Kenai Police Lt. Kim Wannamaker said, at that point, no one had been charged with anything related to the alleged stolen property found at the scene. Rink and Rosin’s only connection thus far, he said, is that the property was found at their home.
“They were at the residence and arrested on outstanding warrants,” he said.
Gordon said she wants to clear her daughter’s name and believes Rosin had nothing to do with any alleged burglaries.
“My daughter does not steal,” she said.
Wannamaker said he doesn’t expect any charges to be filed in the case until after the stolen items including electronics, tools and computers are identified.
