Second Winfield Correctional Facility Escapee Captured

The second of two inmates of the Winfield Correctional Facility who escaped Saturday, June 16, 2012, is back in custody.  Agents with the Enforcement, Apprehension and Investigations (EAI) unit of the Kansas Department of Corrections apprehended 52-year-old Robert Cook (#37745) without incident late Monday morning in Byers, Kansas.  No other information is available at this time.

Inmate Frank Crutchfield, 48, (#37293) was arrested at a residence in Wichita on Wednesday, June 20. The pair escaped the Winfield Correctional Facility in a state-owned truck which was found abandoned about 15 miles north of Winfield on Sunday, June 17. It is believed the two then stole a City of Douglass vehicle, a 2006 GMC Sierra, and Douglass city officials say that vehicle also was recovered this morning from a tow facility.
