Two people are now in custody after one of them tried to escape from a halfway house over the weekend.
Dakota Gallant, 31, and Jessica Bell, 30, have been lodged at Lemon Creek Correctional Center. Juneau Police say charges are pending against them.
Officers said Gallant was reported missing from the halfway house early on Saturday morning.
Later, officers stopped a vehicle driven by Bell on Glacier Highway that appeared to have another person hiding in the backseat under a blanket. The person, who was later identified as Gallant, was ordered out of the vehicle as officers prepared to use a tazer device. Gallant allegedly became uncooperative and had to be physically restrained during his arrest.
