Repeat offender Della Northway caught again

Della Northway, who was arrested in 2018 after fleeing police, is back in custody after she was found in a stolen 2001 white Chevy Suburban on June 12.

An Anchorage police officer spotted the vehicle in the area of 20th Avenue and Lake Otis Parkway, and ran the plates, discovering the SUV had been stolen the night before from a Northwood Drive address.

When the officer attempted to stop the Chevy at 16th Court and Rosemary Street, Northway immediately sped the vehicle backward, away from the patrol car, and turned sharply onto the front yard of a home, striking a nearby car in the process.

The officer tried to use his vehicle to block the Chevy, but Northway ran into the police vehicle twice as she tried to push the squad car out of the way and flee.

It got worse. Another officer arrived, and blocked in the Chevy. Northway crawled out of the passenger side of the Chevy and took off running, police in pursuit. Officers took her to the ground and handcuffed her while she continued to resist.

A search of the Chevy revealed a stolen handgun and two ammo magazines. The gun had been reported stolen on May 21 by an Uber driver, who reported that one of his passengers had stolen it from underneath the driver’s seat while he was out of the car and re-arranging items in the vehicle’s trunk.

The Uber passenger was not one of the two people caught in the stolen Suburban.

After being transported to Anchorage Jail, Northway was discovered to have cocaine on her. She was charged with Vehicle Theft I, Theft II, Criminal Mischief III, Misconduct Involving a Weapon III – Felon in Possession, Fail to Stop, and Misconduct Involving a Controlled Substance III.

In 2018, Northway was a passenger in a stolen vehicle that police were trying to stop near Lake Otis Parkway. The driver and two passengers, including Northway, fled on foot, running through residential areas and jumping over fences.

Officers caught Northway running near 80th Even and Alpine View Circle. She lied and provided them with a false name, but police managed to determine her true identity and that she was a probation absconder on adult supervision for Theft 2 and had an outstanding warrant for probation violation.

  • What does this have to do with anything? Oh, HB something or another?

    • Monkfelonious, it is very relevant to life in Alaska. We are suffering a crime wave because of Democrats and the former governors’ legislation. The public needs to be reminded that the average Deomocrar in the Alaska legislature like Matt Claman are more concerned and have more feeling for rats and cockroaches like this animal who ran away from police than they do for their very honest and hardworking constituents. We need to be reminded of this. The Democrats hate honest working men and women. They hate honest people. They like thieves and rapists more and care more about them. Please don’t ask why this is relevant again. It is offensive and rude.

      • #MeToo

      • Republican Senator John Coghill sponsored sb 91, he championed the bill!
        And what kind of ignorant statement is Democrat’s hate honest hard working people, and like thieves and rapists?!? How old are you? Such a ignorant statement.

  • It’s great that gun owners made it possible for her to have a gun. Thanks, gun owners! You are neat.

    • Keep that in mind when someone like this breaks into your home.

    • I’m pretty sure in this case the crime spree was the stolen car owners fault…

      Blame the inanimate object, not the person who is responsible…

    • Yeah Neil……the same way the the food in your fridge made somebody else fat….. What a ridiculous notion.

    • Neil Black: She put more people in danger with the stolen suburban yet I don’t hear you complaining to the suburban owner about not keeping their car more secure. But keep on hypocriticing your neat

    • When someone attacks you or hold your family hostage or tries to attack your family you will be damn glad that one of us gun owners are around to put a cap in him for messing with regular non violent citizens.

    • Weapons retention is important and we can fault the driver for that. He is safer with it on him (or her). Considering the clientele who stole it… he was “at risk” for not being armed.

    • As a matter of fact. The gun makes it possible that she will actually see prison time. Right on gun owners!

    • You sir, are an idiot.

      • Not really, l’m a legal gun owner, here in Virginia, have concealed weapons permit, from being in the
        military, used to be stationed at Fort Richardson, in Anchorage.
        You’re right, Laughing. You’re required to have a weapon, because of the bears, up there.
        Add a gun safety class, off you go.
        A theft, is prevented by a gun owner, all the time. Mr. Crandall, what would you use if someone broke, into your home, a sling shot?
        Kidnaps your wife, children, cat? Too late after the police, arrive⚰

    • Gun Owners are NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE ELSE HAVING A GUN! EVERYBODY IS AN INDIVIDUAL! EVERYONE MAKES THEIR OWN DECISIONS! JUST LIKE YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS! YOU DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING OR TO JUST LAY THERE AND BE LAZY. NOONE DECIDES THAT FOR YOU, DO THEY? YOUR STATEMENT IS INCORRECT!!!!!

  • I dont understand why she is not in prison. This state does not care about keeping the public safe. Lock her dumb ass up!

    • Why isn’t she in Federal holding and up for Federal charges? Under Federal law she is looking at minimum 10 years and I think, felon committing a crime with a firearm adds another 5 to that.

  • Sounds like a winner, anyone know her DOC#? / DPS#? I want to write her. Lmao

  • Lol democrats this democrats that… YOU SOUND LIKE YOUR CAMPAIGNING LOL…
    WELL THATS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT THE REPUBES

    • Just wait until the USA turns socialist ~ like all you liberals / millennials are hoping for. It might, someday, if democrats take over everything. Hopefully ~ it won’t happen in my lifetime. But if it happens – I really hope it happens in YOUR lifetime. And when it does, remember your liberal views, and just watch how it all pans out. Pretty sure you are not going to like it.

  • She should have made a run for Russia. I hear you guys can see it from your backyard! Oh, Alaska. You’re neat.
