Former Anchorage Police Officer Charged

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A former Anchorage police officer is accused of misusing his authority when he was on the force and improperly accessed records.

Mark J. Moeller is charged with criminal use of a computer, misuse of confidential information and official misconduct. Moeller was served with a summons on Tuesday.

It’s not immediately clear if the 25-year-old man has an attorney.

Police say Moeller used the Alaska Public Information Safety Information Network to run queries on his sister-in-law, as well as a 23-year-old woman he arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in December. Police say he also ran queries on the woman’s former boyfriend and obtained information about the man from Alaska State Troopers.

Moeller was hired by the police department in October 2011 and resigned in February.
