A Kodiak man faces felony charges after burglarizing a relative’s residence, according to court documents.
Shaun Gould, 40, faces felony burglary and misdemeanor theft charges.
On Oct. 17 Gould’s relative reported to the Alaska State Troopers that he believed Gould was responsible for stealing power tools and other items from his residence over a period of several months, “to support a long-lasting drug addiction,” according to court documents.
The relative noted that in recent years, Gould was allowed in his home occasionally, but only upon invitation. He stated that it was unclear which drugs Gould was using, but Gould was unemployed and “the money had to come from somewhere in order to support his drug addiction.”
According to documents, Gould’s relative observed a sloop carved from baleen that belonged to him at the Wild Traders pawn shop, for sale in the amount of $495. The Wild Traders owner reported that Gould had sold the item to the shop for $50 on March 19.
On Oct. 31, the trooper received a warrant to seize the baleen carving, and returned it to the relative.
The relative reported he also was missing assorted Ryobi cordless power tools and a Chicago Pneumatics’ cordless impact wrench.
