August 25, 2019

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Two South Dakota prison inmates accused of walking away from their community service jobs and stealing a pickup truck are back behind bars.

The Department of Corrections says Rosebud Tribal Police caught Tahnasha Stricker and Christy First In Trouble in Rosebud on Saturday. It says the women were driving a pickup that matched the description of the truck taken when they left their jobsite in Pierre without permission on Friday.

Rosebud is about 80 miles from Pierre.

The women were each serving time for drug convictions in multiple counties.
