Editor’s Note: This story was updated Friday night with news of Miller’s apprehension and charges.

A Camp Lejeune Marine was apprehended and charged late Friday night after fleeing from the North Carolina base Thursday afternoon, officials said.

Officials with 2nd Marine Division issued a statement early Friday evening asking the public to be on the lookout for Lance Cpl. Shawn M. Miller, a field artillery cannoneer with 2nd Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment. He had last been seen around 6 p.m. Thursday in Jacksonville, the town outside Lejeune, according to a news release from 2nd Marine Division.

Just before 11 p.m. Friday, division officials announced that Miller had been caught.

“[Naval Criminal Investigative Service], working jointly with the Richlands Police Department and Onslow County Sheriff’s Office, apprehended Lance Cpl. Miller tonight at approximately 8 p.m. in Richlands, N.C.,” officials said in the updated release. “Lance Cpl. Miller was transported to the Onslow County Detention Center and is being held on an armed robbery charge brought by the Pender County Court.”

Information about Miller was not immediately available in the online Pender County court system.

Miller fled Lejeune after he was ordered to pretrial confinement, officials said. The initial release stated that Miller has active warrants in the state of North Carolina.
