An Arizona man on the run for 15 years from South Dakota has been caught.
The U.S. Attorney's Office says Arizona authorities caught 57-year-old Steven Durant earlier this month and he made his first court appearance this week in Rapid City.
A federal grand jury originally indicted him in April 1997 for escape. He was in a community program in the Black Hills at the time.
The maximum punishment if he's convicted of escape is five years in prison.
