Sitka troller falsified Chinook sales, troopers say

From the Alaska State Troopers:

Location: Sitka
Type: Multiple offenses
On 3/13/15 Alaska Wildlife Troopers issued Matthew L. Wilson, 57, of Sitka, a summons to appear in court after an investigation in 2014 revealed Wilson had sold king salmon on two separate occasions that were not harvested under his own commercial troll permit, but rather were harvested unlawfully by a non-permitted fisherman. Wilson sold the fish while knowing they were taken unlawfully, reported the fish as his own, and falsified fish tickets as to the dates and locations of catch. Arraignment set for 4/7/15 in Sitka District Court.
