Escaped Inmates Caught in Kansas

KSAL StaffMarch 12, 2015

Authorities say two men who escaped from a southern Oklahoma correctional center have been arrested in Kansas.

Oklahoma authorities said 40-year-old Lance Colbert and 54-year-old Dwayne Motsenbocker escaped through a hole in the fence of Mack Alford Correctional Center on Sunday.

A U.S. Marshal says Motsenbocker was arrested early Wednesday after an altercation in a Wichita, Kansas, store. He was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail and will face charges in Wichita along with new charges in Oklahoma.

Authorities say Colbert was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Spivey, Kansas. He also has been booked into Sedgwick County Jail until Oklahoma authorities arrive to take him back into custody.

Colbert was convicted in the shooting deaths of two people in the early 1990s. Motsenbocker has multiple robbery convictions.
