Federal authorities arrested a man last week wanted in connection with the 2011 Anchorage death of a 14-year-old girl, after she was allegedly injected with a fatal dose of heroin by a former Navy medic.
A Monday statement from the U.S. Marshals Service's Fugitive Task Force says that 36-year-old Max Raymond Jewett was taken into custody Friday in Peters Creek. The August federal grand jury indictment stems from the death of Jena Dolstad after a Dec. 22, 2011 Turnagain party at the home of the former medic, 28-year-old Sean Michael Warner.
“Jewett had been on the run and eluding law enforcement since the day of the indictment,” officials wrote. “When arrested, Jewett had significantly altered his appearance and attempted to persuade officers of a false identity.”
Both Warner and Jewett stand accused in the federal case of drug trafficking resulting in death and distribution of heroin resulting in death, with Warner facing four additional counts. Warner already faces a state charge of manslaughter.
Marshals credited the Drug Enforcement Administration, as well as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, with aiding in the search for Jewett.
