Alaska State Troopers responded to the area of Joes Drive for a verbal disturbance after 1 am on Thursday. Upon arrival, troopers identified one of the involved individuals as Jesse Lee Jones, who was a wanted man in the killing of Josiah Goecker in Anchorage.
Jones had been on the lam for two days after reportedly killing Goecker, who was reportedly trying to protect a woman who was under assault.
Jones was arrested without incident and handed over to APD. On his voter registration, Jones lists a motel at 3rd and Concrete Street in Anchorage as his home address.
Anchorage police transported Jones to the Anchorage Police Department for questioning by detectives. Once that process has been completed, Jones will be remanded at the Anchorage Jail on his warrant, the department reported on Thursday morning.
