After evading police for nearly a month, Aaron “AJ” Duvall, of Nikiski, was arrested Friday by Alaska State Troopers.
Duvall, who had a $3,000 warrant out for his arrest for a parole violation, was arrested shortly before 5 p.m. Friday after a short foot chase with troopers, according to an arrest affidavit.
Residents of Nikiski, wary after a rash of recent burglaries, put wanted posters for Duvall throughout the community.
In addition to the warrant, Duvall was charged with fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, a class C felony and resisting arrest, a class A misdemeanor once Troopers found him.
The felony can result in up to five years in prison, however Duvall has a prior felony conviction which could result in a prison sentence of between two to four years, according to Alaska statute. A class A misdemeanor can be punished by up to one year in prison.
He was taken to Wildwood Pretrial Facility where he is currently being held without bail.
