One of two possible suspects detained by city police after eluding them in a stolen car was an inmate who had recently escaped from the North Star center.
Several Fairbanks police officers tracked the stolen mercury sedan through town just after 3 p.m. Saturday.
While the vehicle was being detained, police received information that on Friday, north star inmate Frank Yarra Jr had escaped from a transport van parked at the west Fred Meyer store.
Yarra was one of the men apprehended during saturday's traffic stop.
He was subsequently transported back to jail.
