A Juneau man is back in custody and facing more charges after trying to run away from the courthouse and officers on Wednesday afternoon.
Talon Lobaugh, 23, was in handcuffs and wearing a standard orange inmate’s jumpsuit when he escaped custody at the Dimond Courthouse. Judicial Services officers pursued him. His break at freedom barely lasted a little over fifteen minutes and he apparently didn’t get very far. Four Juneau Police officers joined in the search and helped apprehend Lobaugh on a Main Street hillside near the State Office Building.
Lobaugh was earlier arrested Tuesday night after an off-duty state trooper spotted him walking on Mount Roberts Street. Lobaugh allegedly fled on foot when uniformed police officers arrived. That chase only lasted nine minutes, according to officers. He was initially picked up on an outstanding warrant for failing to comply with conditions of probation stemming from six counts of forgery and two counts of theft.
Lobaugh has another charge of resisting arrest from the Tuesday evening chase. No word yet on specific charges from Wednesday afternoon’s chase.
