YANKTON, S.D. (AP) — A state prison inmate at the Yankton Community Work Center who was placed on escape status has been apprehended.

State corrections officials say Matthew Weddell failed to report to his community service job site in Yankton on April 13. He was arrested in Sioux Falls on Thursday.

The 38-year-old Weddell is serving sentences from Stanley County for grand theft and failure to appear. He also faces new charges in Sioux Falls.

Another inmate, Travis Mann, also didn’t report to the job on that same day and is still not in custody.
