U.S. Marshals arrested an escaped inmate in Yakima on Wednesday who jumped from a third story window at a Bureau of Prisons regional re-entry center Aug. 23 in Spokane.

Charles Reedy, 29, allegedly attempted to flee when U.S. Marshals located him in Yakima, but he surrendered after a short standoff, according to a news release.

Reedy was known to have ties to the Yakima area, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. He has multiple arrests in the area, according to court records.
