Juneau police are looking for a fugitive with a criminal history involving drugs and weapons.
Nicholas DeTemple, 26, is wanted for a parole violation on an original charge of misconduct involving controlled substances.
Police say an off duty officer recognized DeTemple near the airport on April 6. DeTemple allegedly came close to striking the officer with his car, a green Volkswagon Passat, then fled the area at speeds up to 80 miles per hour.
JPD Lt. David Campbell says DeTemple may be dangerous, so citizens are advised to avoid approaching him.
“He does have a history of weapons associated with drugs, so you could infer that he has a dangerous side to him,” Campbell said.
DeTemple is described as 5’10” and 160 pounds. He has short, dark hair and tattoos completely covering his neck, up to his chin.
If you see him, Campbell says you should call Juneau police at 586-0600.
