Alaska State Troopers are seeking the public’s help locating 30-year-old Joshua Beebe, of Wasilla, according to a media release.

Beebe, who cut off his ankle monitor 20 minutes after being released from jail on June 25, 2015, is wanted on a $5,000 warrant.

According to the release, the warrant for his arrest is for “failure to comply on conditions of his release on a felony second-degree theft case.” Beebe is described in the release as being 5 feet 7 inches tall, about 180 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

The Alaska State Troopers are urging anyone with information regarding Beebe’s whereabouts to call 907-352-5401 or Mat-Su CrimeStoppers at 907-745-3333. Those who call CrimeStoppers can remain anonymous and could receive a reward of up to $1,000 for information “leading the capture or grand jury indictment on a felony offender,” according to the release.
