A Klamath County jail inmate that escaped late last week is back in police custody.

Officers from the Bend Police Department arrested Kenneth Banes last night, after stopping his van for a traffic violation.

Reports say the man attempted to flee after officers recognized him and police had to use force to arrest him.

Banes escaped from the Klamath County Jail last Thursday, while taking the trash out.

Banes now faces charges in both Deschutes and Klamath counties.
