FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A convicted felon that escaped from a halfway house has been captured by police.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1BiAz2K ) 40-year-old Jody Ryan Moses went missing Friday from North Star Center and was found Sunday walking out of Immaculate Conception Church.

Alaska State Troopers were notified of Moses’ absence after he wasn’t present for two head counts conducted at North Star Center.

Charging documents state that a warrant was requested because Moses represented a danger to the community.

Two Fairbanks police officers spotted Moses coming out of the downtown church.

Moses allegedly had tried to run from officers. Police tried to subdue Moses before shooting him twice with a stun gun.

Moses was at North Star Center facing trial on a felony third-degree weapons misconduct charge.
