BUTTE -- Missoula police captured a man early Thursday who is accused of escaping from the Butte Pre-release Center last month.
Sundance Hernandez, 24, was arrested in Missoula just after 3 a.m. and is being detained in the Missoula jail. He reportedly failed to return to the Butte Pre-release Center on the afternoon of Dec. 14, while on an approved job search.
Hernandez faces a felony escape charge and will be transported to the Montana State Prison, according to authorities at the pre-release center.
He was serving his sentence at the pre-release center on a theft charge out of Missoula.
