SD Man Accused Of Forgery, Escaping Jail Arrested

March 14, 2014, 1:21 PM

CHAMBERLAIN, SD -

A South Dakota man accused of forging a check, breaking into a post office and escaping from the county jail has been arrested.

18-year-old James Shortbear is back in custody.

Records show the Chamberlain man tried to cash a check originally written to AT&T, but amended with his name. Shortbear later broke into a post office and took a $210 traveler's check.

He managed to escape from the Brule County Jail after being arrested by covering his head with a blanket while still wearing an orange jail shirt.

Shortbear faces several charges including first-degree escape, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Officials wouldn't say if Shortbear has an attorney.
