RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A state prison inmate who escaped from a minimum-security prison in Rapid City in early August is back in custody.

The South Dakota Department of Corrections says 31-year-old Raymond Freeman was arrested Monday in Rapid City.

Freeman was placed on escape status Aug. 1 after he failed to return to the corrections facility from a work release job.

Freeman is serving five years in prison for drug convictions in Hughes County. His prison term began in June 2014.
