DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — An inmate who escaped from the regional jail in Devils Lake last month has been captured.

Ramsey County Sheriff Steve Nelson tells KZZY radio that Kenneth Eagleman was taken into custody at a Devils Lake residence late Sunday afternoon. Nelson says Eagleman surrendered without incident.

Eagleman, of Fargo, had been on the lam since breaking through a window at the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center on April 21.

Eagleman was in custody on a felony charge of unauthorized use of a vehicle and various misdemeanors. He now faces a felony escape charge, as well.

Court documents indicate Eagleman also was charged with felony forgery or counterfeiting the day after his escape.

The circumstances surrounding the counterfeiting and forgery charges are unclear.

Eagleman also has several warrants generated from Fargo. Eagleman's attorney didn't immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
