Ronny Dale Peters, 33, escaped from the minimum security compound at Lansing, around 3 p.m. Wednesday, September, 14th. Peters was reportedly sighted by a resident of the Conestoga Estates Mobile Home Park at 1199 E Santa Fe Street in Gardner around 10:30 p.m. Thursday night. Gardner Police arrived to investigate and also spotted a man matching Peters' description. As officers began to approach, the man ran.

Gardner Police launched a large manhunt in the area of the mobile home park. Officers from at least six agencies assisted in the search along with four K-9 teams and a Kansas Highway Patrol Helicopter. The search was concluded after nearly four hours and Ronny Dale Peters still on the loose.

Peters was apprehended at the same mobile home park in Gardner around 11 a.m. Friday morning by the United States Marshall Service. Peters' former girlfriend was also arrested for "Aiding a Fugitive." Heather Ziegler is being held at the Wyandotte County jail. Peters and Ziegler were both arrested inside of a vacant mobile home in the park. They were arrested without incident.
