Inmate captured after escape from Iowa facility

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 43-year-old inmate has been captured following his escape from a work release facility in Sioux City.

Fred Scaletta of the state Department of Corrections says David Kreider was apprehended Friday in Sioux City. He is at the Woodbury County Jail.

Officials at the Sioux City Residential Treatment Facility say Kreider didn’t return as scheduled from his overnight shift job on Thursday morning. He’s serving a 20-year sentence for willful injury and other crimes. He was convicted of stabbing a man in October 2004.

In July last year, Kreider left the center without permission. He was found two days later by U.S. marshals and subsequently convicted of voluntary absence.

Scaletta says Kreider was given another opportunity for work release because officials perceived that his behavior had improved.
