RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A state prison inmate placed on escape status in early December after walking away from a minimum-security lockup is back in custody.

The South Dakota Department of Corrections says Francisco Bordier was apprehended Sunday in Rapid City. Bordier left the Rapid City Community Work Center on Dec. 9.

When he left the facility, Bordier was serving a five-year sentence for distribution of a controlled substance and a concurrent three-year sentence for possession of a controlled substance. He could end up serving additional time as a result of his escape.

Leaving a non-secure correctional facility without permission constitutes a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Bordier is at the Pennington County Jail. It wasn’t immediately clear Monday if he has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
