On Monday morning, KPD announced through Facebook and the Nixle messaging service that it is actively searching for 28-year-old Sabino Abrego, who KPD characterized as a “wanted person.”
The Kodiak Police Department does not typically ask the public for help finding suspects, but in a phone interview, police chief T.C. Kamai said it asked for help in this case because “he’s actively evading us.”
According to court documents, a warrant was issued for Abrego’s arrest in early September after Alaska State Troopers searched Abrego’s home. During the search, troopers found 7.1 grams of methamphetamine, 3.5 grams of heroin, oxycodone pills, scales and packaging material.
According to the court documents, both methamphetamine and heroin are purchased for personal use in tenths of grams.
On Sept. 13, a grand jury indicted Abrego for second-degree drugs misconduct, third-degree drugs misconduct and three counts of fourth-degree drugs misconduct, all felonies.
Kamai said Abrego is from Kodiak and may be living with friends. “He's from Kodiak and people know him; we're not entirely sure that everyone who knows him is actively aware of his status.”
Kamai said Abrego knows he is wanted, and he is welcome to turn himself in to police at any time.
