JUNEAU- Residents and business owners in Gustavus are offering a reward to catch whoever is behind a recent rash of thefts in the southeast Alaska community.

The first item taken was a camera from a car on July Fourth. Since then, the Fireweed Gallery reported $400 cash and $230 worth of cigarettes were stolen. More recently, Alaska State Troopers say a resident had $2,000 worth of wild game traps stolen.
There isn't a full-time law presence in the town near Glacier Bay, and Mayor Sandy Marchbanks says the burglaries have changed the character of the town.
The reward is $5,000 for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.
Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to contact troopers at907-465-4000. Callers may remain anonymous.
