Frazee man charged with escape

Daniel Scott Leslie, 21, of 510 Birch St., Frazee, has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony escape from custody.

According to court records:

On Oct. 26 he was booked into the Becker County minimum security jail to serve a 150-day sentence on a Wadena County conviction for criminal damage to property.

After that he was supposed to serve 90 days for misdemeanor fifth-degree assault.

He was granted work-release privileges and on Friday was released for work. He failed to return and authorities learned that he was allegedly in Lincoln, N.D. and planned to leave for Texas in a few days.

On Monday, District Judge Peter Irvine issued a warrant for his arrest.
