RAPID CITY, S.D.- A minimum-security state prison inmate who walked away from the
Yankton Community Work Center back in November 2020 is in custody.
Inmate Matthew Fritz-Chappell was arrested Feb. 17. He is currently housed in the
Pennington County Jail.
Fritz-Chappell was one of three inmates who walked away from the Yankton facility
Nov. 27. The other two inmates, Seth Boocock and Corey Bales, remain on escape
status.
Fritz-Chappell is serving a 3-year, 9-month sentence for possession of a controlled
substance from Yankton County and a 3-year, 3-month sentence with 1-year and 6-
months suspended for possession of alcohol or marijuana by an inmate from Bon
Homme County.
Leaving a non-secure correctional facility without authorization constitutes second degree escape, a Class 5 felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
