FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A North Pole man who walked away from a halfway house two weeks ago was arrested Thursday by Alaska State Troopers.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (bit.ly/1KdRdi6) reports troopers acting on an anonymous tip arrested 23-year-old Logan Patrick Austin.

Austin faces drug and theft charges.

He had been released on bail but was returned to custody Jan. 3 after investigators said he violated conditions of his release.

Troopers say Austin walked away Jan. 14 from the North Star Center. A bulletin issued Wednesday said he was considered a dangerous offender.

Authorities in Fairbanks continue to seek a second man, 35-year-old Michael Bracht, who was scheduled to begin a 32-month sentence but took off last week while on a 12-hour release in the care of a custodian.
