TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Authorities say an escaped Shawnee County Jail inmate has been caught in Topeka.

WIBW reports (http://bit.ly/14Fdt0n ) a state corrections spokesman says 25-year-old David Kerth was taken into custody Tuesday by Topeka police. No further details were immediately available.

Kerth escaped early Sunday from Shawnee County Jail custody after he walked away from a state work release program. He was working at a Shawnee County processing plant.

He served time in 2007 for a Douglas County robbery and was placed under Kansas Department of Corrections supervision in February of 2012 for a probation violation.
