A St. Croix County (Wis.) inmate who removed a locator bracelet and eluded authorities for a half-day has been arrested and is back in custody.
The Sheriff's Office issued an alert early Saturday after Jesse Marske 25, failed to return at 2 a.m. as scheduled from a work release job to the county jail. Marske is serving a sentence for disorderly conduct and failure to pay child support, but also had a prior conviction for sexual assault on his record.
While Sheriff John Shilts didn't have an indication that Marske might harm others, he issued the notice to keep the public "informed" and looking for the escapee.
Marske was spotted Saturday afternoon walking behind a service station near the intersection of Hwy. 12 and Brakke Drive in Hudson Township. Deputies surrounded a wooded area behind the station. Marske emerged from the woods and surrendered without incident.
