Escaped Leavenworth County Jail inmate back in custody

December 31, 2012


An escaped Leavenworth County Jail inmate is back in custody after almost two days on the run.

Raheem Keron Armstead, 29, was arrested Monday in Leavenworth. He had escaped from the jail in Leavenworth on Saturday afternoon, walking away from a work detail about 1 p.m. while emptying an outdoor trash bin.

Arrested June 26 on felony drug charges, Armstead was being held at the jail pending additional drug and nonpayment of child support charges. He previously served time in prison after a 2008 conviction for robbery and aggravated burglary in Douglas County.
