Man with outstanding warrant turns self in

A 26-year-old man with a warrant out for his arrest turned himself in to Alaska State Troopers in Juneau on Tuesday.

Troopers arrested Lance M. Joyce on the outstanding $5,000 warrant after he went to the troopers office on Sherwood Lane, according to an online trooper dispatch.

The warrant charged Joyce with petition to revoke probation in connection to a drug-related case that dates back to 2010.

Electronic court records show Joyce was charged with three counts of second-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance in May 2010, one of which he pleaded guilty to. He was sentenced in November 2011 to five years in prison with three years suspended, plus three years of supervised probation after his release, records show.

Troopers said he was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and is being held on $5,000 bail.
