Juneau police say they picked up two teenagers who allegedly ‘broke out’ of the Johnson Youth Center.
Alexander Netling, 18, and Amante Frazier-Reese, 18, were arrested at the 4300 block of Glacier Highway late Friday night, a little over two hours after the reported escape.
A Johnson Youth Center employee followed the two teenagers, but lost track of them. Juneau Police officers searched the area, but they also could not find the two young men.
A Blackerby Street resident reported voices outside her home and responding officers followed two tracks heading to Lemon Creek. Netling and Frazier-Reese were reportedly found in a storage shed on a Glacier Highway property.
Instead of being returned to the Johnson Youth Center, officers say the two men were taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and charged with second degree felony escape and fourth degree misdemeanor criminal mischief for causing damage to the Johnson Youth Center building when they escaped.
