WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities have captured the second of two inmates who escaped earlier this month from the Winfield Correctional Facility in south-central Kansas.
The state corrections department said 52-year-old Robert Cook was apprehended without incident Monday morning in Byers, a Pratt County town about 110 miles northwest of Winfield. No details of the arrest were immediately available.
Cook and 48-year-old Frank Crutchfield escaped from the Winfield prison June 16 in a state-owned truck that was found abandoned the following day about 15 miles away. Authorities believe the pair then stole a pickup truck.
A tip led authorities to Crutchfield last Wednesday at a home in Wichita.
Cook has convictions for multiple offenses in Harvey, Cowley, Pratt and Butler counties and for a 1983 escape in Sedgwick County.
