A Casper man who escaped from the Casper Re-entry Center on Tuesday is now back in custody, a police department spokesman said Friday.

Keith Koronka, 26, was arrested Thursday evening and booked into the county jail.

Law enforcement agencies were looking for Koronka after he failed to return to the CRC, 10007 Landmark Lane, by 7 p.m. Tuesday after an appointment.
The Glenrock Independent newspaper reported in December that Koronka stole a pickup at a bar in Glenrock early last year. The Wyoming Highway Patrol found the pickup a day later, and a pistol was missing from the pickup.

He was bound over for trial in the Eighth District Court in Converse County in April, was released on a $10,000 bond, failed to make a court appearance and was arrested again. In July, he pleaded guilty to one count of simple burglary and two other counts were dismissed.

Koronka was sentenced to a suspended three- to five-year prison term to be followed by four years of probation, and was ordered to pay $625 in fines and was ordered to perform community service.
