FAIRBANKS — Authorities are seeking a pair of 18-year-old men who fled from their escort during a Fairbanks Youth Facility outing two weeks ago.
Court documents say Rashid Glasco and Demetrey Rice were leaving a Narcotics Anonymous meeting about 10 p.m. Nov. 23 when they walked down a stairwell ahead of the FYF officer who was escorting them on the trip. When the officer got outside, the men had left in an unknown direction.
The officer drove around the surrounding neighborhood near Thomas Street and University Avenue but was unable to locate the men.
According to charging documents, neither Glasco nor Rice had a cellphone, money or identification at the time. Each is charged with first-degree unlawful evasion, a felony.
Glasco, who is described by police as a known member of the Crips street gang, was wearing a black stocking cap and a green and gray coat at the time. He was being held at FYF on an original charge of first-degree vehicle theft.
Rice, wearing a black stocking cap and black coat, was at FYF on a felony drug charge.
