Teen who escaped custody gives himself up three days later

A teen-ager who escaped the custody of the Hastings police reconsidered and turned himself in three days later.

The Hastings Police Department reports 17-year-old Zachary Vaught of Hastings has been charged with felony escape after surrendering to officers at the Hastings Police Department.

Vaught was being transported to the Adams County jail last week when he fled in handcuffs. He had been arrested for probation violation. He also faces a couple of new charges, assault and felony theft, from a previous incident.
