COLUMBUS, Kan. (AP) -- A man who escaped from the Cherokee County jail Sunday has been arrested and returned to jail.

But authorities allege Jimmy Dale Sluder committed a residential burglary before he was arrested Tuesday in Pittsburg.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/NFshTm ) Sluder was part of an inmate work program when he ran away while taking out trash early Sunday. He was in jail on theft charges.

He was arrested at a Pittsburg apartment after officers received a tip about his whereabouts.

Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves says Sluder is suspected of breaking into a Columbus house Tuesday afternoon. He allegedly tied up the homeowner and left with a vehicle and other property. The homeowner was able to free himself and notify authorities.
