SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa fugitive has been apprehended in northeast Nebraska’s Dakota County.

Iowa prisons spokesman Fred Scaletta said Monday that 42-year-old Cletus Armell already has been transferred to Woodbury County Jail in northwest Iowa.

Armell was listed as escaped on July 14 after he didn’t return to the Sioux City work release facility from an appointment.

Records show Armell escaped from a residential work release center in Sioux City in 2012. He was captured a short time later and was returned to prison.

In November 2013 he was again transferred to work release. His original sentence was 15 years for armed robbery.
