A 40-year old man who got out of the car and disappeared last weekend while being transferred (by relatives) from the Mt. Pleasant Correctional Facility to the work-release center in Burlington, has been placed on “Escape” Status.
A sex offender who escaped from a southeast Iowa work release facility last weekend is back in custody.
A spokesperson for the Iowa Department of Corrections says 40-year-old Shane Lieb fled a vehicle during a traffic stop on Saturday while being transported from the Mount Pleasant Correctional Facility to the Burlington Work Release facility. He was captured Thursday and taken to the Des Moines County Jail.
Lieb is serving a “special” life sentence for third-degree sex abuse in Mount Pleasant. He began serving the prison sentence in July 2009 and was in the process of being discharged to the work release program at the time he escaped.
Iowa farmland values saw their biggest drop in almost three decades in the latest survey released by Iowa State University, but our corner of the state was the exception.
The two surviving candidates for an open seat on the Burlington City Council went head-to-head last(Thur) night on cable and radio from City Hall, but most of their views didn’t seem all that different.
