Sedgwick County inmate caught after accidental release

By Jacob Weston. CREATED Jul 15, 2014

 The McPherson County Sheriff's Office has a man in custody, who was turned loose by mistake from the Sedgwick County Jail.

Chad Engel was accidentally taken to the jail's lobby on July 8th, after being mistaken for an inmate that was being released. Engel walked out and left the area before the mistake was realized. Officers immediately began searching for him but had no success.

Engel was caught on Friday at Kanopolis Lake, then transported to McPherson County where he was wanted on a warrant.

He's now facing additional charges in Sedgwick County after leaving the jail.
