Watch for antics:  A long comments section has been moved to Personal Notes 2019/10/28.  Much of the material relates to high crime stuff that does not directly mention Hebbe, at least so far in Police Factor’s comparatively simplistic online-only review.  Prudent anti-cartel investigators and others probably need to jump in and dig deeper as to whether Hebbe himself was in any way directly involved in the heinous crimes of the Alaska Army National Guard/Anchorage Police Department scandal.  Hebbe was in the APD at the time and had been an Army National Guard member.  Being close to a serious problem does not directly prove complicity, but we should be on alert.  He was looking for a change during the fiasco, reaching out for chief positions in at least Wisconsin (See 2011 entries below - Chippewa (Menomonie?) and Hng(Milton?)) and New Mexico.  He accepted a position in Wisconsin and canceled, saying he had to deal with something in Anchorage - this was around the time of the scandal.  A couple of years later, he accepted a position as Chief of Police of the Farmington Police Department (FPD) in Farmington, New Mexico.

Excerpt: Alaska's DEA Assistant Special Agent in Charge Michael Root said the Sinaloa Cartel is the largest organization they deal with in Anchorage. "A lot of our meth and heroin comes up through the Sinaloa Cartel," he explained. "A lot of it will stop in California or Washington, and then come up to Alaska through either the airlines or postal service or carriers — a lot of it's body-carried or carried on a person." … Excerpt: She was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint north of Nogales, where she was found to have 200 grams of cocaine on her person. The woman is identified as "Female Individual 2" in a federal court document that was sealed on Tuesday, after being accessible to the public for months. The document is a warrant filed by a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent investigating the trafficking of drugs to Alaska. Female Individual 2 was carrying roughly $20,000 worth of cocaine, according to a street value estimate from the Anchorage Police Department.She represents a small piece of a puzzle that is largely kept secret: The inner workings of the Sinaloa Cartel, a Transnational Criminal Organization (TCO) based in Sonora, Mexico. https://www.ktva.com/story/40768037/how-alaska-residents-help-the-sinaloa-cartel-smuggle-drugs-north La Familia: More on drug networks, cartels, as related to Anchorage area/Guard la Familia, this below is on early founder’s strange religious tendencies: Mexican Drug Cartels - wikia - La Familia Michoacana Cartel https://mexicandrugcartels.wikia.org/wiki/La_Familia_Michoacana_Cartel Excerpt: La Familia Michoacana Cartel La Familia Michoacana Logo La Familia Michoacana, (English: The Michoacán Family) La Familia (English: The Family), or LFM was a Mexican drug cartel and an organized crime syndicate based in the Mexican state of Michoacán.

The cartel's first leader, Nazario Moreno González, known as El Más Loco (English: The Craziest One), preached his organization's divine right to eliminate enemies. He carried a "bible" of his own sayings and insisted that his army of traffickers and hitmen avoid using the narcotics they sell. Nazario Moreno's partners were José de Jesús Méndez Vargas, Servando Gómez Martínez and Enrique Plancarte Solís, each of whom has a bounty of $2 million for his capture, and were contesting the control of the organization https://mexicandrugcartels.wikia.org/wiki/La_Familia_Michoacana_Cartel [extracted 2019/10/29] More on drug problem in Alaska: KTUU (2018/02/13) AST Drug Enforcement Unit outlines drug problem in Alaska.

Michael Duxbury, Commander of the Statewide Drug Enforcement Unit and Alaska Bureau of Investigation, said the drug problem affects everyone. "We are seeing burglaries, we are seeing person-on-person crimes, we are seeing car thefts, we are seeing homicides all derived from drug trafficking, misuse and abuse and it is not a private matter," Duxbury said.  Duxbury said the unit recently seized 8 grams of pure fentanyl coming in to the state. While it may not sound like a lot, Duxbury said it's enough to kill 4,000 people. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency said as little as 2 milligrams is a lethal dose for most people.

Trial testimony has revealed Henry clashed with Hebbe, Capt. Kris Miller, Capt. Ross Plummer, Lt. Myron Fanning, and Lt. Kevin Vandegriff and Sgt. Jack Carson, who are both with internal affairs within the Anchorage Police Department. Hebbe and Henry's dislike for each other was so strong that the police chief at the time, Mark Mew, moved them into separated divisions.

He said he transported cocaine and marijuana using National Guard vehicles and sold them while on duty.  But Anchorage police mishandled the resulting investigation into accusations of drug sales and sexual assaults by National Guard members, according to a secret, city-funded investigation that became public for the first time this week. The 97-page report, which was completed March 15, 2015, portrays a cozy relationship between some members of the police department and National Guard leadership and alleges misdeeds by former Guard officials and Anchorage police leaders alike.  Within three days of learning that a Guard recruiter admitted to illegally selling drugs with the use of National Guard resources, police revealed key details of the investigation to the head of the National Guard in violation of APD policies and over the objections of some officers. The Alaska National Guard commander at the time — Maj. Gen. Thomas Katkus — was also a retired Anchorage police captain and a potential target in the investigation. https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2018/10/17/secret-report-says-anchorage-police-botched-investigation-into- drug-dealing-by-alaska-national-guard-recruiters/ 2016 Chief Hebbe (2016/11/06) On the death of an officer, all Americans should mourn https://chiefhebbe.wordpress.com/2016/11/06/on-the-death-of-an-officer-all-americans-should-mourn/ Alaska Public Org (2016/01/05) Family suspects guard scandal at play in pregnant soldier’s death.  By Liz Ruskin https://www.alaskapublic.org/2016/01/05/family-suspects-guard-scandal-at-play-in-pregnant-soldiers-death/ Excerpt: “Not having any answers, there’s so much torment in the family,” says her brother, Randy LaRose Jr., of Wasilla. “If it was natural causes, I could accept that. But the fact that the autopsy wasn’t done right, you have to question.” Michelle Clark was pregnant when she died in 2011. (Photos of Michelle are in the article). Clark’s family does question, and after five years with no answers, their doubt has hardened into suspicion. They suspect the medical examiner, who did not find a cause of death. They suspect the Anchorage Police of not looking hard enough for answers, and because several of them are also in the Guard. They suspect the lawyers they hired to help them get answers. They suspect Clark’s husband, a pharmacy technician. They suspect murder, but Clark’s brother acknowledges they have no hard evidence. “I’d give everything I had for answers,” he says. ….One of the last people she approached was a National Guard officer named Ken Blaylock: “Basically, she stopped me in a hallway and asked if she could talk to me. I said yes. She had tears in her eyes. She said she had personal knowledge of drugs and sexual assaults within her organization. She was afraid of her family. She was afraid of people in her unit. She was afraid of some of her friends. She was afraid for her life and the life of her baby.” Lt. Col. Blaylock, now retired in Palmer, says during that five-minute conversation, Clark worried she’d be seen talking to him. He was at the time something of a clearinghouse for sexual assault victims. Blaylock says he tried to get Clark to talk to police or a chaplain that day, the Friday before Martin Luther King Day, 2011.“I said ‘look, we need to go do this right now,'” Blaylock says. “And I was trying to convince her. And she said: ‘No sir, they’re going to kill me.’”Blaylock says they agreed to talk again Tuesday. But Michelle Clark didn’t survive the weekend.“On Sunday I got a phone call saying that she’d been found dead,” Blaylock recalls. Blaylock was a polarizing figure in the Guard. He got severely crossways with Gen. Tom Katkus and other Guard leaders; Blaylock says because he was trying to address wrong-doing.  He says Guard leaders portrayed him as a nut, but he says his reputation is redeemed by the investigations that confirm the Guard was rife with sexual assaults, reprisals, bullying and favoritism.“Everything else that I pushed, that everyone was calling me psycho on, has now been vindicated and proven to be true,” he said. “So this was just another piece of it. It’s not done yet.”Blaylock is pressing for more investigation. https://www.alaskapublic.org/2016/01/05/family-suspects-guard-scandal-at-play-in-pregnant-soldiers-death/ 2014 Daily Times Farmington NM (2014/01/25) New police chief hired for his work with natives and fluctuating populations https://www.daily-times.com/story/archives/2014/01/25/new-police-chief-hired-his-work-natives- fluctuating/75984768/ Excerpt: He was a military police lieutenant in the Army National Guard in Wisconsin and Alaska. Excerpt: Hebbe said Farmington and Anchorage, Alaska — where he worked as a police officer for the last 23 years — have several similarities that effect their police departments. Each city is surrounded by rural populations, many of them Native American, that cause the cities' populations to significantly increase at certain times.

The released reports coincide with the state's contentious gubernatorial election. The May 3 Army Regulation 15-6 (AR) report obtained by The Anchorage Press alleges that Lt. Col. Joseph Lawendowski, who joined the Alaska National Guard (ANG) in 2003, promoted steroid use by recruiters, used government vehicles for strip club outings, and possibly used government-issued credit cards for improper purchases when he led the command from 2008-2009.

She passed on nearly a dozen complaints between December 2012 and February 2013. One e-mail specifically mentions National Guard whistleblower Ken Blaylock  in the subject line.

One 171-page packet contained mostly press releases and official photographs. Another 151-page set is made up of duplicate records from previous drops. While much of the material is unresponsive, the fourth packet contains a 2009 letter from then-Rep. Nancy Dahlstrom takes great exception to a letter sent to her from Debra Blaylock, wife of whistleblower Kenneth Blaylock.  Debra Blaylock, a retired lieutenant colonel with the Alaska Army National Guard, wrote to Dahlstrom before Thomas Katkus was appointed adjutant general. Blaylock asked Dahlstrom to “seriously look into Tom Katkus’ background if his name comes up for nomination.” She went on to write that Katkus was under investigation for “numerous allegations.” Blaylock acknowledged her husband had filed one of the complaints against Katkus and stated she had retired from service, “rather than suffer any more of his abuse.” 2012 Kenneth (Ken) T.

And we have a soldier and her baby dead 2 days after she tried to come forward with what she knew.  But the only persons that are investigated, get counseled, or lose their jobs are the victims or the whistleblowers that enforced law and regulations.  Major General Tom Katkus: x Retired from Anchorage Police Department.  Has close ties to corrupt personnel from APD and Alaska State Troopers. x Command appointed Joe Lawendowski to the AKARNG Recruiting and Retention Battalion, after command transferring Ken Blaylock out when he refused to allow mismanagement and illegal activities in R&R. x AST and APD personnel told Katkus that a drug taskforce was about to arrest some R&R personnel and Katkus let the drug dealers know to get rid of the evidence. x Covered up Sexual assaults and protects Rapists. x Arranged for Sensitive Property to be stolen for Domestic Terrorists (Sovereign Citizens).  x Directed the creation of GMD/Puerto Rican/Colombian Drug Cartel connection. x Held a Council of Colonels meeting with COL DeHaas where they spoke against a whistleblower and told those present  there is no place for him in the organization because he reported Drug Trafficking and Sex Crimes.

Excerpt of stolen military base items:  And yet where is the CID investigation(s).  Federal military sensitive equipment; stolen from a building that is mostly funded with federal funds; located on a federal military installation.  If a crime is committed on Fort Richardson by anyone, CID is notified to investigate.  If CID determines the FBI or State Troopers should have the case, then CID will turn it over to them.  But our current leadership somehow arranges to leave CID out of the loop.

He told me General Tom Katkus had in his words: “he gave us the heads up on that whole Prieto thing, and told us to “get rid of the evidence before any arrests were made.” Eddy Prieto, I found out later, was working undercover for the police at R&R.  An ongoing investigation was culminating in arrests at R&R (Prieto had evidence on R&R).  Excerpt on apparently ficticious 38th Troop Command, Brigade: No unit Identification Code. x Authority for this unit has been repeatedly denied by both DA and NGB. x AGR’s taken from real units to work in a non-existent unit. x Funds from real units used to support the fictitious 38th TC. x In the past our specialty units fell under the state headquarters.  38th TC is unnecessary. x This is a “Front Business” or “Front Unit” to protect and hide organized criminal activities from other units.  Any investigations into reports or complaints towards GMD, R&R, or the AVN Battalion must first go through their fictitious higher HQ the 38th TC.  This fictitious brigade was used to give COL Jorgensen a BDE Command for her General Officer packet.  Excerpt on security alert: Ground Based Midcourse Missile Defense (GMD) at Fort Greely Alaska: x Defense system to intercept nuclear missiles attacking this hemisphere.  Security there is compromised. x Sex Club participation is mandatory if you want to get promoted http://cryptome.org/2012/12/ng-alaska-blaylock.pdf [extracted 2019/10/25] 2011 Hng News Milton Courier (2011/02/24) By Rick Miller Excerpt: The field of candidates for the next Milton police chief has been narrowed to five finalists.  The names of the five candidates were released February 18, which means the recruitment process is proceeding exactly as scripted by Milton police commissioners and consultants Moffett and Associates of Appleton.  “It’s moving along smoothly,” Dave Ostrowski, commission chair said Tuesday, “I think the commission is pleased with how it’s moved along.” One month ago the field of police chief candidates totaled 20.  That pool filled out achievement questionnaires and Moffett consultants interviewed them by telephone.

He  faces up to three years in prison.  https://www.abqjournal.com/661096/ex-springer- police-chief-pleads-guilty-to-helping-deputy-steal-from-officers-posing-as-drug- couriers.html  Hill John,   Albuquerque, APD/Officer, 2019/08-fired for unnecessary force by APD Chief Mike Geier; misdemeanor charge of battery,-, KOB KOB https://www.kob.com/albuquerque-news/apd-officer-fired-for-unnecessary-force/5463829/ Hill Mike, Albuquerque, APD/Detective, 2012/04/19; Detective Hill non-fatally shot Dennis Aragon Hindi SteveAlbuquerque,  APD/Officer, 2016 - finding of a state Law Enforcement Academy administrative judge who ruled that an Albuquerque police officer fired amid accusations he tried to intimidate a civilian police investigator didn’t commit “conduct unbecoming of an officer.”  Articles Abq Journal (2016/03/29) Judge sides with APD officer fired in ethics probe https://www.abqjournal.com/748396/judge-sides-with-apd-officer-fired-in-ethics-probe.html  Police One (2016/03/31) Judge sides with officer fired by [APD Chief Gordon Eden].  By Ryan Boetel.

That appeared to be a key underlying point in the finding of a state Law Enforcement Academy administrative judge who ruled that an Albuquerque police officer fired amid accusations he tried to intimidate a civilian police investigator didn’t commit “conduct unbecoming of an officer.”  The administrative judge recommended that the Law Enforcement Academy Board take no action against former APD officer Steve Hindi’s certification — a ruling that if upheld would make Hindi eligible to work for another police agency in New Mexico. The board is chaired by Attorney General Hector Balderas.  APD Chief Gorden Eden fired Hindi last year after Hindi was accused of using his on-body camera to record Civilian Police Oversight Agency investigator Erin O’Neil when she interviewed him about a citizen complaint. Hindi then tried to look up the woman’s personal information through a federal law enforcement database that contains private information, according to city records. Eden fired Hindi and sent the board a letter explaining his reasons. Hindi was subsequently allowed to retire in return for dropping an appeal of his termination to the city Personnel Board. https://www.policeone.com/officer-misconduct-internal-affairs/articles/judge-sides-with-officer-fired-by- albuquerque-chief-4VYdxt2k6oI8MmFn/ Hollier Jeremy,  Albuquerque, APD/Officer, 2010/07/2-Shooting by Officer Jeremy Hollier of Len Fuentes who threatened with a knife during a domestic violence call; 2018-shooting of Wilson deemed justified, Victim Len Fuentes, Abq Jrnl summary incident 2010/07/27; Albuquerque Journal. Summary of police shootings https://www.abqjournal.com/community-data/apd-under-fire-incident-summaries Excerpt: 7/27/10: Officer Jeremy Hollier shoots and kills Len Fuentes Location: 3400 Crest SE Len Fuentes, 41, was shot and killed by officer Jeremy Hollier when Fuentes threatened officers with a knife during a domestic violence call in southeast Albuquerque, according to police. Hollier, a three-year veteran, and another officer responded to an apartment on Crest SE after neighbors reported a loud altercation between Fuentes and a woman. When the officers arrived, they said they found Fuentes outside of the residence with a woman and her mother. One of the women was putting her belongings into a vehicle as Fuentes stood at the door of the apartment screaming and acting aggressively, according to a search warrant affidavit. When Fuentes reached for a knife he had in his waistband, a struggle ensued between Fuentes and officers. Fuentes slipped out of the grasp of the officers and backed away, raising the knife in his right hand, according to police. Officers said that when they raised their weapons and commanded Fuentes to drop the knife, he responded, “Shoot me (expletives)!” Fuentes lunged toward the officers and Hollier fired two shots, hitting Fuentes in the chest and in the stomach, according to the affidavit. Fuentes died at University of New Mexico Hospital. Fuentes’ mother has been highly critical of APD’s fatal shooting of her son, who she said suffered from schizophrenia. In September 2011, a grand jury found that Hollier was justified in shooting Fuentes.
