Former Iolan Eric James remained at large Friday after escaping with three others from the Ottawa County Jail in Minneapolis, about 120 miles northwest of Topeka, earlier in the week.

Two of the fugitives were back in custody Thursday morning and the third, Santos Carrera-Morales, 22, later was apprehended.

James, also 22, briefly attended Iola Middle School. He was convicted of three counts of burglary and kidnapping in Anderson County, for home invasions, and two counts of criminal damage to property in Allen County.
