RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A minimum-security state prison inmate who was placed on escape status over the weekend is back in custody.

Authorities say 54-year-old Ernest Foos was arrested Monday night and transported to the Pennington County Jail.

Foos had left the Rapid City Community Work Center without authorization on Saturday. The Department of Corrections facility houses minimum-security inmates and Community Transition Program parolees.

Foos is serving forgery-related sentences out of Lawrence and Pennington counties.
