An Alaska fugitive has been caught on Maui.

Investigators later determined that Leigh had boarded a flight to Maui shortly after he cut off the monitor.

Leigh was charged with violation of condition of release and criminal mischief in the third degree. He is currently on Maui awaiting extradition back to Anchorage.
