An Alaska man allegedly broke into a local firehouse, stole a truck, then drove with the sirens on for about 15 miles until reaching a bar in a neighboring town, a report said Monday.

The suspect, Dawson Cody Porter, was arrested after the joy ride on Saturday in front of Fisherman’s Bar in the town of Naknek, a local Fox affiliate reported.

Porter allegedly used a piece of wood to bust through a window of the King Salmon Fire Station in Eagle River, according to the report.

He then got behind the wheel of the truck, hit the sirens and took off for the bar, bursting through the station’s doors and driving about half an hour before climbing out.

“Porter caused approximately $10,000 in damage and rendered a $100,000 piece of fire apparatus inoperable until repairs can be made,” local police told the news station.

When he got to the bar, two police officers arrested him on burglary, vehicle theft and criminal mischief charges, the report said.

    Police say man accused of crashing gate threatened Trudeau

    OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — A military reservist who allegedly crashed his truck through a gate on the grounds where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lives was armed with two shotguns, a rifle and a revolver, and threatened Trudeau, according to prosecution documents made public on Monday.

    Police allege that Corey Hurren brought a prohibited M-14 rifle, plus the shotguns and a revolver made by Hi-Standard when he entered the grounds on July 2. He’s also accused of having a prohibited high-capacity magazine.

    In addition to 21 charges relate to the weapons, Hurren is accused of threatening to cause death or bodily harm to the prime minister. The exact nature of threat was not disclosed.

    Police have said that Hurren, a 46-year-old on-duty member of the Canadian military reserves who also has a gourmet sausage business, drove from Manitoba and crashed his truck through the gate at 6:30 a.m. Thursday. The truck was disabled and he was spotted with a rifle before being contained in a greenhouse on the sprawling property in Ottawa. Police began talking to him and he was arrested two hours later.

    Trudeau lives on the grounds of the property where Canada’s governor general resides but was not home at the time. The post of governor general, currently held by Julie Payette, is a mostly ceremonial position. Payette also was not home at the time.
