Alexandria police on Friday arrested a fugitive who escaped from prison in Wisconsin on Monday, Sept. 11.

The Alexandria Police Department arrested 38-year-old Dustin Bone in the area of King and N. West Streets in Old Town at around 5 p.m. after an officer used a license plate reader and determined that the black pickup truck he was driving was stolen, according to an APD news release and the police scanner.

Bone was arrested more than 900 miles from the minimum-security Sanger B. Powers Correctional Center in Oneida, Wisconsin.

Bone was arrested without incident and is currently held in the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center, according to APD.

He was convicted of armed robbery in 2016, sentenced to seven years in prison and was reportedly two months away from his scheduled release.
