Full Story; Armed Prowlers actually false alarm

The Fairbanks and North Pole areas today were up in arms after a Facebook Photo was distributed claiming “Armed Prowlers” were roaming the area.

According to Alaska State Troopers, early morning on the 13th a homeowner reported the two mysterious men with what appeared to be “guns” and caught them on his home security camera.

 After the photo went viral in the area, the two called Troopers notifying them that they indeed were playing a game, however with Airsoft guns.

The two males, one in his early 20s and the other a teenager were warned by Troopers that the guns, although harmless could frighten neighbors.

The two involved did not threaten any property or land.
