Jail escapee in Sioux Falls quickly apprehended

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — An inmate who escaped from the Minnehaha County Corrections Center didn't stay on the lam for long.

Authorities say 42-year-old Ryan Quartier escaped Tuesday by breaking a window and fleeing. He was taken back into custody about 15 minutes later when police received a tip about a suspicious person near a hotel.

Quartier was originally being held on burglary and grand theft charges out of Lincoln County. Prosecutors will be considering adding an escape charge.
