Captured! 2nd Winfield Escapee Back in Custody

The second of two inmates who escaped from the Winfield Correctional Facility earlier this month is back in state custody.  Agents with the Enforcement, Apprehension and Investigations (EAI) unit of the Kansas Department of Corrections apprehended 52-year-old Robert Cook without incident late this (MON) morning in Byers, Kansas. The other escapee, 48-year-old Frank Crutchfield, was arrested at a residence in Wichita last week.  The two escaped the Winfield Correctional Facility in a state-owned truck which was found abandoned about 15 miles north of Winfield.  It's believed the two then stole a City of Douglass vehicle, a 2006 GMC Sierra.  City officials in Douglass say that vehicle was recovered this (MON) morning from a tow facility.
