MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Authorities in eastern Kansas say a jail inmate who escaped three weeks ago is back in custody.

KSNT-TV reports that 32-year-old Billy Womack of Manhattan did not return to the Riley County jail after a work release on Dec. 5. Womack was being held on a warrant for failure to appear.

Police arrested Womack at a motel in Manhattan Friday night. He is charged with two counts of aggravated escape from custody and a probation violation, and is jailed on $103,000 bond.

Womack was also arrested in August on a warrant accusing him of drug distribution.
