Alex Hallett-Miles, 26, was arrested in Hawthorne on Friday on a murder warrant out of Terre Haute, Indiana.

Deputies from the Putnam County Sheriff's Office responded to 117 Lake Galilee Drive around 2 p.m. Friday after receiving an anonymous tip that a wanted subject was at the residence.

According to a PCSO news release, Hallett-Miles was located and initially provided a false name to deputies. He eventually disclosed his real identity and was arrested on the warrant.

Hallett-Miles is currently held in the Putnam County Jail without bond, awaiting extradition to Indiana.
