After further investigation, Alaska State Troopers discovered that 23-year-old Pilot Station resident Nicole Polty also assisted in the jailbreak earlier this month. A warrant has been issued for her arrest.

During theĀ first week of January, 22-year-old Dale Fancyboy allegedly conducted an armed jailbreak to release two men, Dion Joseph, 22, and Thomas Heckman, 19. The men were in jail on charges of assault, burglary and theft.

The men left the jail by threatening the jail guard and two village police officers with a shotgun. But, one by one, community members rounded up the escapees and turned them into authorities.
