6 a.m. Update:

According to the police, one of the two people allegedly involved in an armed home invasion has been captured.

In an email Thursday, APD told KTUU that Christa Chadwell had been arrested just before 7 p.m.

The man identified by police, Kasey Dunlap, is still considered a suspect and is still being sought by police. He is considered to be armed.

Police are asking the public to contact them if either of the suspects are spotted, or if anyone has knowledge of their locations.

Original Story:

Two people have been identified after police say they broke into an Eagle River home, armed with handguns, and demanded both money and drugs.

According to Renee Oistad, spokesperson with Anchorage Police Department, the home invasion took place at 5 a.m. on Jan. 17, at a home on the 12200 block of Breckenridge Drive.

The two suspects have been identified as Kasey Dunlap, 42, and Christa Chadwell, 31.

Authorities said the two broke into the home and threatened the occupants with guns, then stole property and fled. No one was injured in the robbery, police said.

Police say the selection of the home by the two suspects "was not a random event."

Dunlap already had an unrelated warrant out for his arrest, and now faces a $12,000 felony warrant for the armed robbery. Chadwell has a similar robbery warrant for $10,000.

In addition to the photos issued by Anchorage police, the two suspects were described physically. "Kasey is 5’07” tall, 170 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes," APD wrote in an email. "Christa is 5’02” tall, 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes."
