SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - UPDATE, 12:15 p.m.: Authorities say two South Dakota inmates who left a community work center without authorization are back in custody.

Shawn Mills and Ronnie Moore were arrested in Sioux Falls on Tuesday, according to the South Dakota Department of Corrections. They left a work facility in Sioux Falls the day prior.

Leaving a non-secure correctional facility without authorization constitutes second-degree escape, a Class 5 felony in South Dakota punishable by up to five years in prison.

The South Dakota Department of Corrections is looking two minimum-security inmates, who escaped Monday.

Shawn Mills and Ronnie Moore left the Sioux Falls Community Work Center Monday without permission. Mills is serving a sentence for forgery and identity theft from Minnehaha County. Moore is serving a sentence for his 6th DWI offense from Codington County.

If you see either of the inmates or know where they are, you’re asked to contact law enforcement at 605-367-5051.

Leaving a non-secure correctional facility without authorization is a second-degree escape. That means each man could serve up to five years in prison for leaving the work center.
