KSAL StaffJuly 26, 2016

An inmate who escaped from the Dickinson County Jail in Abilene Monday night was back behind bars by late Tuesday morning. By Tuesday afternoon he was joined by an alleged accomplice.

According to the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office, 27-year-old Trent Hostetter escaped Monday night, through a hole in a fence surrounding an outside exercise yard.

Hostetter then stole a vehicle, which was later located by Herington Police. A chase then ensued, going into Lincolnville, where Hostetter crashed  into a garage attached to a house. He then escaped on foot.

Hostetter was considered to be armed and dangerous.

Multiple law enforcement agencies spent all night, and much of Tuesday morning searching for Hostetter before taking him into custody.

20-year-old Warren J. Varelman-Morton was arrested in Chapman a couple of hours later. He is accused of assisting the escape, and could face charges that include Criminal Damage to Property and Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Escape from Custody.
