Authorities in northeast Kansas found an inmate days after his escape.
The Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office said sheriff's officers took Raheem Keron Armstead, 29, into custody about 11 a.m. Monday. He was found in a home near 13th Terrace and Kiowa Street in Leavenworth, KS.
Armstead ran from an escorting officer about 1 p.m. Saturday while taking trash to an outside dumpster.
He was convicted in 2008 of robbery and aggravated burglary.
He was arrested and booked into the Leavenworth County Jail on June 26 on various felony drug charges. He was being held pending additional drug-related charges and nonpayment of child support.
A police advisory said Armstead has a history of fighting with and eluding police.
A person living in the home where officers found Armstead was also taken into custody. Charges are pending, until an investigation by officials is complete.
