A minimum-security inmate at a northeast Kansas prison is back in custody after reportedly walking away from a work detail.
The Leavenworth Times reports 52-year-old Ronald J. Emons was caught without incident late Monday afternoon at or near Fort Leavenworth.
Emons is serving time at the Lansing Correctional Facility for violating his probation for a conviction of attempted indecent liberties with a child.
KAIR Radio reported that Emons went with a work crew around 6 a.m. Monday to a reservoir outside the prison compound’s fenced area. Staff noticed him missing around 10:40 a.m.
A judge sentenced Emons in July 2011 to probation for attempted indecent liberties with a 14- to 16-year-old child.
He has been sent to Lansing twice for violating the terms of his probation.
