On 03/07/2018, at 10:02 PM, the Juneau Police Department received a report regarding the burglary of a storage shed, located in the 1600 block of Renninger Street.

The caller reported her husband caught a male suspect going through their storage shed and taking items from it. The male suspect took off running with a skate board that was stolen from the storage unit and got into a vehicle. The caller's husband and brother in-law chased after the suspect and confronted him in the vehicle before the suspect could drive away. They recovered the skate board and the suspect drove away from the area. The license plate of the suspect's vehicle was provided to police.

Lysons was taken to the Lemon Creek Correctional Center where he was held on the warrant and the charges of burglary 2nd degree, a class C felony and theft 4th degree, a class A misdemeanor. Lysons was held without bail.
