The Kansas Department of Corrections said 54-year-old Bradley Verstraete was taken into custody Monday morning by officials from the Lansing Police Department. He was arrested on an escape warrant without incident.

Verstraete had been placed on escape status after he walked away from the minimum-security unit Sunday evening.

He is serving a 102-month sentence for convictions of attempted 2nd degree murder and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer that occurred in 2017 in Pratt County.

The investigation into Sunday's incident is ongoing.
