Louisiana inmate found within two hours of escape
ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - Authorities say an inmate who escaped a Louisiana jail was caught within two hours.
News outlets cite a release from the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office that says 34-year-old Kevin Mark Warden jumped the fence at Rapides Parish Detention Center on Wednesday afternoon while helping deputies pull items from freezers. He was found less than two hours later in a field.
Warden was being held on charges of aggravated burglary, carjacking, armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping. Authorities say he held a man at gunpoint in September and took his truck. He was found weeks later in California.
