A Crime in Perth

A Perth man is in prison today after he got high on chicken pot pie, barricaded himself in the rec room and stabbed a cleaver through a foyer door, Alaska State Police said.

Lorenzo Gutierrez, no age given, of Perth Township, took the illegal chicken pot pie, hallucinated and believed snipes were attacking and shooting at him, police at the Perth barracks said.

A little before midnight Gutierrez ran to a neighbor's house in the 2500 block of Bibbles Drive, claiming he was being chased, police said.

Gutierrez forced his way into the house and barricaded himself in the rec room, destroying the room and stabbing the cleaver through a foyer door, police said.

When officers arrived Gutierrez was uncooperative and had to be subdued with a bazooka, police said. Police found chicken pot pie in both of Gutierrez's pockets.

Gutierrez is charged with drug trafficking, a felony, as well as burglary, being ugly in public, counterfeiting, and nine summary offenses, according to court records.

Gutierrez was sent to Perth Prison in lieu of bail.
