URBANDALE, Iowa -- The second of two men who escaped from the Warren County jail on June 1 is now in custody.

29-year-old Darian Crayton was apprehended by Urbandale Police at approximately 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to Sgt. Gary Lang.

Authorities were called to the Kum & Go at 4585 156th Street in Urbandale on a report of someone driving off without paying for their gas. During the investigation, the suspect, Crayton, returned to the store. He was identified and arrested by responding officers without incident.

Crayton is now charged with escape, second-degree theft, fifth-degree theft and driving while barred.

Crayton and fellow inmate, 26-year-old Frank Manders, escaped from the Warren County jail at 4 a.m. on Monday. Authorities said they escaped by manipulating a locking mechanism in their shared jail cell and were able to get away from the deputy on duty.

Manders was found and taken into custody later that same day around 4:45 p.m. He was initially in custody for forgery and vehicular homicide charges.
