An inmate who allegedly escaped from the Lansing Correctional Facility Wednesday evening was back in custody the next morning, according to a prison official.

Dustin F. Robinson, 30, had been placed on escape status after he allegedly walked away from the the prison’s minimum security east unit at about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday. He was reported missing when he could not be located at the facility, according to LFC spokesman Brett Peterson.

LCF officials learned Thursday morning that Robinson had been taken into custody by the Kansas City, Kansas, Police Department.

Robinson was located in the area of 65th Street and State Avenue in Kansas City, Kansas, according to KCK Police Department spokesman Jonathon Westbrook.

Members of LCF investigations staff positively identified the person in custody as Robinson, and he was transported back to the prison. After returning to LCF, Robinson was placed in restrictive housing, according to Peterson.

The details regarding Robinson's departure from the prison are being investigated.

Robinson is serving a 131-month sentence for aggravated assault, fleeing and attempting to elude police, robbery and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was convicted of the crimes in Shawnee County.

Robinson previously had been paroled but was incarcerated at LCF after violating parole. He had only been at LCF since June 25, according to a Kansas Department of Corrections website.

He had been scheduled to appear before the Prisoner Review Board in August to determine his new release date, according to Peterson.
