Two Charged With Mailing Drugs to Unalaska

Friday, October 24 2014

Two people are facing felony charges for mailing heroin and methamphetamine to Unalaska.

Jesse Lee, 24, is accused of sending roughly $70,000 worth of drugs from Washington State to Unalaska this month. The destination was a post office box that's registered to Lee and 30-year-old Kyle Eby.

Their address has been monitored for suspicious activity since early October, says police chief Jamie Sunderland. He declined to give a reason for that -- or why postal officials flagged two parcels bound for Unalaska.

KUCB One Day Pledge Drive

Our ONE DAY RADIO PLEDGE DRIVE hit the airwaves for 24 hours on October 3.  It was a huge success, meeting our goal of $23,000, the second highest grossing radio drive since we launched KUCB FM in 2009!  We had lots of fun as our staff and guest DJs rocked the studio with their favorite tunes all day and our members stopped by to make their pledges and show their support throughout the event.

We'd like to thank our Board members and our many volunteers who assisted us in the lead-up to the drive and throughout the fundraiser--we could not have done  it without you! Special thanks to the UniSea Hospitality Division for matching UniSea employee pledges, to local Safeway employees who took up a collection for us, and to Alaska Airlines for the donation of a round trip ticket as a membership incentive. Thanks, Unalaska, for stepping up and showing your support of community radio—we count on you to keep us on the air and you always come through!
