Escaped Vernon Co. Jail inmate found and arrested in La Crosse

 

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- An inmate who escaped from the Vernon County Jail earlier this month has been arrested in La Crosse. 

Leah Morgan, 24, had been granted work release privileges while serving a sentence for theft and criminal damage to property at the jail. 

But on January 1, after leaving for work, Morgan failed to return. 

In a news release issued Sunday by the Vernon County Sheriff's Department, police say Morgan was arrested in La Crosse Saturday at 10 a.m. in the 1900 block of Miller St. 

The release says she was taken into custody "without incident."
