SPOKANE -- U.S. marshals on Saturday arrested a federal inmate who had escaped from custody in Spokane earlier in the week.
Sandra Irene Duffy, 47, reportedly walked away from a medical appointment in Spokane while with her attorney. She was re-captured at 2 p.m. Saturday in north Spokane, officials said.
Marshals said a judge had given Duffy a furlough to attend the appointment.
Duffy was charged in July 2011 with conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine after being picked up in a drug sweep that netted 25 arrests throughout eastern Washington, including in Pasco, Connell, Moses Lake and other cities.
Marshals said a combination of investigative sources and anonymous tips led to Duffy's arrest on Saturday.
