FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Inmate Seth Boocock in custody

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.- A minimum-security state prison inmate who walked away from the Yankton Community Work Center back in November 2020 is in custody.

Inmate Seth Boocock was arrested Feb. 23 in Sioux Falls. He is currently housed in the Minnehaha County Jail.

Boocock was one of three inmates who walked away from the Yankton facility Nov. 27. Inmate Matthew Fritz-Chappell was arrested last week in Rapid City. Inmate Corey Bales remains on escape status.

Boocock is serving a 10-year, 9 month sentence for aggravated assault from Minnehaha County.

Leaving a non-secure correctional facility without authorization constitutes second-degree escape, a Class 5 felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
