TAFT, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma state prison inmate serving a sentence for escape was recaptured less than five hours after escaping a minimum security prison in eastern Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma State Department of Corrections says 41-year-old Robert Youngblood was taken into custody at about noon on Saturday after escaping the Jess Dunn Correctional Center in Taft at about 7 a.m. The department says Youngblood was seen by staff leaving the prison grounds on foot. The department says Youngblood was serving time for escape from a Logan County jail.
