Sheridan County escapee captured in South Dakota

A prosecutor says one of two men who escaped from a
Nebraska Panhandle jail has been captured on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Rural Radio network affiliate KCSR in Chadron  reports that Hijinio Garnette, of Gordon, was captured last week at a home in Kyle, South Dakota. He and Esdon Haukass of Mission, South Dakota, escaped from the Sheridan County Jail in Rushville on March 26.

Sheridan County Attorney Jamian Simmons says Garnette is back in Nebraska and is due in a Rushville courtroom next Thursday to face charges of escape and theft.  Simmons says she had no information on the whereabouts of Haukass.

The two escaped out a window after overpowering a jailer.
