A man who walked away from a Billings prerelease center last weekend was arrested early this morning by the Billings Police Department.
Lt. Mark Cady said police received information that Jesse Tyler Davis, 26, was at a home on Lordwith Drive, near Pioneer Park. Police arrived at the home, found Davis in a bathroom and arrested him on an escape warrant at about 2 a.m., Cady said.
According to a press release from Alternatives, Inc., Davis walked away from the Alpha House men's prerelease center on Nov. 15 at about 5 a.m. He was convicted on theft charges out of Missoula County in 2002 and escape charges in 2005. Davis arrived at Alpha House on Sept. 2.
Davis was booked into the Yellowstone County Detention Facility where he is being held on suspicion of felony escape from an official detention center. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.
