BOISE, Idaho (AP) — State prison officials say an inmate who walked away from a work crew in Pocatello is back in custody.

The Idaho Department of Correction says 39-year-old Kirsten Walz was arrested Saturday afternoon at a private home in Pocatello.

She was being held at the Pocatello Women's Correctional Center. She walked away from a work crew assignment Friday afternoon.

The Idaho Statesman reports that Walz was one of 13 people indicted July 10 by a federal jury for drug distribution, conspiracy, unlawful possession of firearms and other crimes.
