Garden City A 27-year-old man who escaped from a western Kansas jail nearly three months ago is back in custody.
Garden City police say a tip to Crimestoppers helped lead to the capture of Mitchell Ebihara on Thursday. Officers found him hiding in a storm shelter outside a home in the city,
Ebihara escaped Oct. 12 from the Kearney County Jail after attacking a corrections officer. He was awaiting trial on a charge of attempted murder in the January 2009 shooting of a man in Lakin.
