- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - The former commander of a Fairbanks-based Alaska State Troopers detachment faces charges of sexually abusing a minor. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports former Capt. Warren Tanner was arrested Friday in North Pole. He was arraigned Saturday on six counts of sexual abuse. He's being held in the Fairbanks Correctional Center on no bail. A preliminary hearing for the 75-year-old is scheduled March 4. Online court records didn't show Tanner had a lawyer. The Child Crimes unit of the Alaska Bureau of Investigation became aware Thursday of an adult male who was alleged to have abused a 14-year-old girl in North Pole over several years. Tanner was arrested the next day. According to charging documents, authorities allege the abuse started as early as 2003 and occurred as recently as 2011.
