Minimum-security Lansing inmate recaptured

LANSING, Kan. (AP) -- A man who walked away from a minimum security job at Lansing Correctional Facility has been recaptured.

The Kansas Department of Corrections reports 43-year-old Paul Cohagen was caught Thursday evening in Leavenworth County. Prison officials did not release more details of where or how he was found.

Cohagen was reported missing Monday. He was a plumber at the prison, which allowed him to leave the minimum security area to go to the prison's main campus.

Cohagen is jailed for an August 2011 burglary in Osage County. He was scheduled to be released in November. He has several prior felony convictions in Shawnee County for burglary, forgery and theft.
