Two Escapees From Frankfort Caught

CENTRAL CITY, Ky. (AP) - Two inmates who escaped from a
Frankfort minimum-security prison earlier this week have been
caught.

The Messenger-Inquirer of Owensboro reported one inmate,
53-year-old John Alstatt, was arrested outside the Central City
Wal-Mart on Thursday without incident.

Muhlenberg County Sheriff Eddie Perry says Alstatt and
28-year-old Robert Fritz on Monday had walked away from the
Frankfort Career Development Center. Police in Evansville, Ind.,
say Fritz was apprehended in that city Tuesday after police spotted
him in a stolen pickup truck.

Alstatt had been serving a seven-year sentence on a theft
charge. Fritz was serving a 10-year sentence on charges of
possession of a forged instrument and fraudulent use of a credit
card.
