Man accused of stealing forklift to free crashed truck

FAIRBANKS — A 21-year-old Delta Junction man is accused of stealing a forklift and driving it nearly three miles Monday morning to move a truck he had crashed on Phillips Field Road.

About 5:50 a.m., Aleksander Aleksandrovich Glushko, allegedly crashed a truck near Flowline Alaska on Phillips Field Road, then walked to the George Horner Ice Park near University Avenue, where he took a forklift without permission, said Lt. Matt Soden with the Fairbanks Police Department.

Glushko then allegedly drove the forklift down Phillips Field Road past the crash scene, to Illinois Street, Soden said. An Alaska Railroad worker told police he saw a man drive the forklift to Illinois Street. The worker told police Glushko said he was taking the forklift to get his dad’s truck, which had a flat tire.

Glushko then apparently turned back to the west where police at the scene of the truck crash spotted him.
“Police were on scene talking to the railroad worker when Mr. Glushko came driving back up on the forklift,” Soden said.
