Escapees Back in Custody

Investigations staff at Lansing Correctional Facility (LCF) received information late Wednesday evening explaining that LCF escapees Matthew Glen Allender and Chad Duane Amack were living on the street in a location in Kansas City, Kansas.  The Kansas City Kansas Police Department was contacted along with Special Agents of the Kansas Department of Corrections. Allender and Amack were apprehended without incident at approximately 10:30 p.m. and have been returned to the Lansing Correctional Facility.  

Inmate Amack is serving a 23-month sentence based on a Shawnee County, Kansas, conviction for theft and aggravated burglary. Inmate Allender is also serving a 23-month sentence from Shawnee County, Kansas, based on two convictions for theft. Both Amack and Allender were scheduled for release from the prison portion of their sentence in mid-2012.  

Amack and Allender will be facing charges in Leavenworth District Court for aggravated escape from custody.  

Amack and Allender escaped from LCF's minimum-custody East Unit, Tuesday, November 15, at approximately 6 p.m. Their escape from custody remains under investigation and additional details regarding this will not be released as this information could be detrimental to facility security. 

Additionally, there are no similarities between the Amack and Allender escape and the September 14, 2011 escape of Ronny Dale Peters. The standard procedure of the Kansas Department of Corrections is to review and critique every serious incident and take appropriate actions.
