SIOUX FALLS – Authorities have apprehended an inmate who failed to return to a minimum-security prison in Sioux Falls.
State Corrections officials say 30-year-old Travis Thorngren was apprehended Thursday in South Sioux City, Neb. He went missing Monday from the minimum-security unit at the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls. He had been serving a five-year sentence on a grand theft conviction in Lincoln County.
Another inmate, 19-year-old Cody Summerside, was apprehended by local authorities on Monday near Rapid City. He had left the prison on March 8 to search for a work release job and didn’t return. Summerside was serving a four-year sentence on a Meade County drug charge.
