Police arrest escaped convict after 32 years
SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas prison escapee who had been on the run for more than three decades has been recaptured.
The state Department of Corrections says 60-year-old Steven Dishman was arrested Sunday at a home in Springdale in northwest Arkansas by local law enforcement and state troopers. The department initially spelled Dishman’s first name as Stephen.
The corrections department says Dishman was serving a 7-year sentence for theft of property and burglary convictions when he escaped in May 1985.
