SD Jail Escapee Apprehended After Nearly 3 Months

An inmate who escaped from the Yankton County jail last fall has been apprehended in Sioux Falls.

Authorities say Kai Hansen was arrested Monday afternoon in a motel. Police recovered a vehicle Hansen is believed to have stolen in Yankton County after his escape late last October.

Police say Hansen was jailed last fall for violating parole on a burglary conviction. He allegedly opened a garage door while he and another inmate were washing cars at the jail and fled on foot, later stealing the vehicle. He was not considered dangerous.
