An inmate who escaped from the Lansing Correctional Facility early this week was found and arrested Thursday afternoon in the Kansas City area, a spokesman for the Kansas Department of Corrections confirmed.
Calvin Henry Green III, 36, allegedly stole a dump truck Monday and drove away.
Kansas Department of Corrections said its agents, working with the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, apprehended Green around 3:30 p.m. Thursday in Independence. He was arrested and taken to the Jackson County Detention Center.
Green, a minimum-security inmate, is serving a sentence for a Wyandotte County conviction for aggravated battery with intent to cause great bodily harm.
