(OSBORNE COUNTY, Kan.)
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department says an escaped inmate on the run since Sunday has been taken back into custody.
Investigators say Joseph Mosier surrendered to authorities in Elk County early Wednesday morning. Sedgwick County deputies picked-up Mosier and booked him into the Sedgwick County Jail.
Investigators say Mosier was a Sedgwick County inmate being held at the Osborne County Jail. He escaped from a fenced-in exercise area sometime Sunday, but was not missed until a head count at 10:00 Sunday night.
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department says Mosier stole a truck in Osborne and drove to Augusta. The truck was found in Augusta Monday morning, but investigators say he stole a different car while there.
Mosier was originally held on charges of burglary, criminal damage to property, attempted theft and parole violations. He currently faces new charges of aggravated escape and auto theft related to the escape.
