An inmate who escaped from the Barton County Jail in Great Bend has been captured.

The Barton County Sheriff said Lee Dean was located at a house at 201 Plum Street in Great Bend at 11:40 a.m. Dean had been discovered missing late Sunday during a jail count.

Tips from the public led Barton County authorities to the house on Plum Street. Dean and another person inside the home surrendered without incident.

The second person in the home will likely face charges of aiding and abetting.

Dean was being held for a probation violation.
