ABILENE, Kan. (AP) - An inmate who escaped a central Kansas county jail is back in custody.

The Kansas Highway Patrol and Dickinson County authorities said Tuesday that 27-year-old Trent Hostetter was recaptured, though they didn’t released details.

Hostetter escaped through an outside exercise yard Monday evening at the county lockup. Authorities believe that he then stole a vehicle in Abilene, leading officials on a chase before he crashed the vehicle and fled.

Hostetter was jailed on alleged parole violations and was awaiting sentencing on charges of impersonating an officer.
