NEW CASTLE, Ind. - An inmate who escaped through a hole in the roof of the Henry County Jail has been captured, police said.
David Allen Kline III, 29, was noticed missing from his cell just before 6 a.m. Monday.
Police said they believe he escaped through a hole in the roof of the jail that was found inside another cell within the same block.
Kline was apprehended just after 11 p.m. at the Dollar Inn Motel in Greenfield, police said. He was preliminarily charged with escape.
Kline was originally arrested Oct. 2 after he failed to show up for a court hearing, police said.
He's set to stand trial Jan. 28 on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and intimidation after he pointed a handgun at an employee in his New Castle tattoo shop, police said.
