JULIAETTA, Idaho (AP) — Law enforcement officials on Thursday captured an inmate who escaped from the Lewis County Jail in northern Idaho.
The Latah County Sheriff's Office tells KREM-TV (http://bit.ly/2oZPZXH) that 54-year-old Derek Bost was captured at about 7:45 a.m. in Juliaetta.
Authorities say Bost slipped wrist restraints on Wednesday afternoon and got into a gray 1992 Jeep Cherokee and drove away.
Police found the vehicle about two hours later in nearby Juliaetta and chased a man running near the river but he disappeared into the woods.
Bost was in custody on nine charges, including burglary and unlawful possession of a firearm.
