Last of 4 inmates who escaped from Kansas jail captured in Nebraska; stolen car recovered
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) ' The last of four inmates who escaped from a north-central Kansas county jail this week is back in custody.
The state Department of Corrections says 22-year-old Eric James was apprehended around 5:30 p.m. Friday in Omaha, Neb., and is now in the custody of Omaha police.
Details on how he was captured were not immediately released.
Authorities also recovered a stolen Nissan Altima that James was thought to have been driving.
James was serving a state sentence for robbery and other crimes when he and three fellow inmates escaped Wednesday morning from the Ottawa County Jail in Minneapolis, Kan., about 120 miles west of Topeka.
