Alaska State Troopers arrested 60-year-old Anchor Point resident Bret Herrick in Anchor Point at a residence at about 8:40 am Tuesday. Herrick was wanted in connection with the shooting of a trooper on Monday in Anchor Point, which is a community on the Kenai Peninsula.
The shelter-in-place has been lifted for Anchor Point and surrounding neighborhoods. Herrick was on the lam for about 24 hours.
“The Alaska State Troopers would like to thank the Anchor Point community for the valuable information that was provided that resulted in Herrick’s arrest. There will be an increased law enforcement presence in Anchor Point today as Troopers continue their investigation in the incident that occurred yesterday,” the Troopers reported.
Herrick has a long list of prior contact with law enforcement and the court system for offenses such as kidnapping, robbery, and domestic violence.
