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

Corrections officials say 24-year-old Salvador Ortiz was caught in Rapid City on Saturday and jailed.

Ortiz was serving a four-year sentence for burglary in Pennington County when he left the Rapid City Community Work Center without authorization on Oct. 7. He could now face another five years behind bars.
