CARSON CITY, NV - An inmate from the Nevada Department of Corrections was captured soon after escaping Tuesday evening.

About 6PM, Brian Kakowski was seen outside the perimeter fence
at the Warm Springs Correctional Center. Corrections officials say the tower officer kept the inmate in sight at all times and was in touch with officers who were after him. He was back in custody within ten minutes, captured less than a mile from the minimum-security facility.

Prison officials say he never came into contact with anyone from the
public. Kakowski has been transferred to the Northern Nevada Correctional Center.

Kakowski is serving 13 to 60 months for failure to stop upon signal of peace officer.

The escape is under under investigation.
