Authorities apprehend South Dakota inmate who walked away

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate who walked away from a minimum security prison in Rapid City more than two months ago is back behind bars.

State corrections officials say Jeremy Phelps was arrested Sunday in Rapid City. He is being held in the Pennington County jail.

Phelps was reported missing on Oct. 8 after authorities discovered he was not at his work release job.

Phelps is serving a four-year term for a drug conviction in Brookings County.
