A 39-year-old man who ran away from a Juneau halfway house earlier this month has been arrested.
Juneau Police say Derek McMillan was picked up this morning when police stopped a vehicle for speeding on Yandukin Drive. McMillan was a passenger in the vehicle.
Juneau resident Regal Robert Hudson, 20, was arrested for driving without a valid license.
Both McMillan and Hudson were lodged at Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
McMillan left Gastineau Human Services Halfway House on Aisek Street on Jan. 3rd.
According to police, his criminal history in Alaska and Florida includes drug offenses, robbery, vehicle theft, and assault.
