YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - An inmate who failed to return to a minimum security prison in Yankton has been apprehended.

State corrections officials say 30-year-old John Collins was arrested east of the city early Thursday and taken to the county jail.

Collins had been placed on “escape” status Wednesday afternoon after he left a community service work site without authorization.

Collins is serving a 10-year sentence for grand theft, a five-year sentence for forgery and a 10-year sentence for third-burglary.
