Marshals capture man

U.S. Marshals last week arrested in Tacoma, Wash., a former Port Graham man charged with first-degree sexual assault on a minor. Benjamin L. Moonin, 49, had been accused by Alaska State Troopers of fondling a young girl in Port Graham in January 2011. Marshals said in a press release that Moonin had a criminal history in Alaska and Washington, with convictions for first-degree sexual assault, burglary, assault and failure to register as a sex offender.

Moonin was jailed without bond at Pierce County Corrections Center in Tacoma pending his extradition to Alaska.
