APB for Jason Premo



Anchorage police say Jason Premo is a “person of interest” in the murder of Geoff Sorden, 48, who was shot during a fight in an apartment on the 6000 block of Austin Street on Monday. Another person was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound, but survived.

The deceased man, Sorden, and Premo had history. In 2010, they were both implicated in an armed robbery of a meth dealer on Seldon Road in Wasilla.

Premo received 10 years, and Sorden was sentenced for two years in the robbery of Jeffery Kowal, who was also sentenced  for meth possession and distribution. Kowal’s wife and toddler were in the home during the robbery.

By 2013, Premo was out of prison and on electronic monitoring.
In February, Premo was arrested for possession after police contacted him regarding fraudulent return of merchandise and was found to have methamphetamine. He was among 17 people arrested during a sting at the Walmart store on DeBarr Road, where police and store security worked together to beat back a rash of shoplifting and other crimes.
Premo is 41 years old, and is 5’9″ tall and 165 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
