The department says minimum-security inmate Arthur Eagle Feather walked away from the Yankton Community Work Center Wednesday.
Eagle Feather is a Native American male, 25 years old, 5’7’’, weighing approximately 185 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone who sees Eagle Feather or knows of his whereabouts should contact law enforcement immediately. Failing to return following an assignment comes with a charge of second-degree escape, a class 5 felony, and is punishable by a maximum of five years in prison.
South Dakota law states that any person who conceals any prisoner knowing that the prisoner has escaped is guilty of a Class 5 felony.
Community Work Centers house minimum-security inmates and parolees in the Community Transition Program.
