In an undercover operation stretching over nine months, Harmon D. "Danny" Fisher, 59, was arrested on June 9, alleged to have sold marijuana on seven separate occasions to four different people, one of whom was under the age of 21 at the time of the sale, according to court records.

All the sales took place in the Blue Checker Bunkhouse, on Airport Beach Road, Unalaska, between September 2016, and June 9, when he was arrested by police from the Unalaska Department of Public Safety.

Officers located approximately 3.5 pounds of marijuana in Fisher's apartment after his arrest. The marijuana, of various strains including Blue Dream, Silver Velvet and Girl Scout Cookies, has a local street value of over $27,000. Fisher was charged with five felony and four misdemeanor counts of Misconduct Involving a Controlled Substance. His bail has been set at $5,000. The inquiry is expected to continue as officers investigate possible violations of the Unalaska code of ordinances. UDPS encourages those with additional information to speak with Police Officer Chris Honan, 907-581-1233.

Fisher was earlier convicted in 2008 in federal court for selling methamphetamine in Unalaska.

Alaska voters in 2014 approved the recreational use of marijuana, and the sales of small quantities from licensed facilities. There are none in Unalaska presently, although licensed pot stores are open for business in Anchorage and elsewhere in the sate.
