SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Authorities are searching for an inmate who escaped from the Minnehaha County jail.

The sheriff’s office says 19-year-old Anthony Beck of Lennox jumped a 5-foot chain-link fence about 5:30 p.m. Sunday while outside for recreation and fled on foot.

Beck was in custody on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and false impersonation in Lincoln County and grand theft in Minnehaha County. He was being held on $2,500 bond.

County Jail Warden Jeff Gromer tells the Argus Leader that Beck was a minimum security inmate and is “not a violent criminal by any means.”
