U.S. Marshals say they have apprehended a federal prisoner who escaped from a Kansas City hospital.

The Marshals service says Larence Garth, 33, was taken into custody by authorities at a residence in Kansas City on a CrimeStoppers tip. 

Garth, of Kansas City, escaped Tuesday from Truman Medical Center, where he was receiving medical treatment. Authorities say he ran east from the hospital and tried to solicit at a ride from at least one person, who refused.

He was being held on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

A $5,000 reward was being offered for information leading to his arrest.
