LINCOLN, Neb. – Authorities have captured the second of two Nebraska inmates who escaped from a maximum-security prison last week.
Timothy Clausen was arrested in Omaha shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday following an extensive search of the area. The Nebraska State Patrol said in a statement that the 52-year-old had cut his chair, shaved his beard, changed his clothing and had a handgun nearby. He was taken into custody without incident.
Clausen and 37-year-old Armon Dixon escaped Friday from the Lincoln Correctional Center in Lincoln. Authorities say the convicted sex offenders climbed into a laundry truck that was headed to another prison and punched a hole in the truck's roof.
Authorities have also charged an Omaha woman, Wanda T. Minor, with accessory to a felony. She's accused of helping Clausen get from Lincoln to Omaha.
