UPDATE: Escapee Captured in Sioux Falls

Police Lights

According to reports from KSFY, the escapee from Huron was captured Tuesday night in Sioux Falls and is in custody. After receiving several tips form the public regarding a vehicle that matched the description, officers arrived and made the arrest.

The Beadle County Sheriff’s Department says Charles Beeney escaped from the Huron jail early Tuesday and is armed with a makeshift weapon. Huron schools were on lockdown status as a precaution.

The 45-year-old Beeney is originally from Lansing, Kan. He was arrested last December on an aggravated eluding charge after leading law officers from five counties and the South Dakota Highway Patrol on a chase through Jerauld County. The chase ended when he crashed the pickup truck he had stolen in North Dakota.
