COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A 62-year-old inmate serving an 18-year sentence at a correctional facility in southern Colorado drove away from his work crew and was arrested a few hours later in Kansas.

The Department of Corrections says Douglas Beagley was assigned to an outside work crew and was operating a dump truck when he drove off Thursday afternoon. He was arrested in Johnson, Kansas.

Beagley was serving time for burglary and vandalism.
