Man gets prison for escaping custody

A former Detroit Lakes man was sentenced Tuesday in Becker County District Court on a felony charge of escape from custody.

Lorenzo Lee Manyribs, 47, now of 511 32nd Ave. S., Moorhead, was ordered to serve 13 months in prison, with credit for 246 days already served, and fined $135.

He was accused of failing to return to the Becker County Jail on May 14, 2011, while he was on work release from the facility.

According to the complaint, he failed to report back from work release, and was reported to have been in Fargo late that afternoon, drinking.

He was later arrested on a warrant and incarcerated at the Lino Lakes prison facility; upon his release, he was ordered to appear in Becker County court to answer the charge against him here.
