Third Ind. State Prison Escaped Inmate Arrested

The last of three convicts who escaped from the maximum-security Indiana State Prison was caught on Thursday after 11 days on the run, police said.

About 20 members of a U.S. Marshals fugitive task force took convicted murderer Mark Booher into custody around noon at a hotel on the northwest side of Indianapolis, Supervisory Inspector Shannon Robinson said.

"He didn't present any kind of struggle," Robinson said, The Associated Press reports.

Mark Booher, 46, New Castle, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service about noon, according to Doug Garrison, spokesman for the Indiana Department of Correction.

The arrest happened at the Intown Suites, 3650 W. 86th St. on the Northwestside.

Booher had been serving a long sentence after being convicted of a murder in Indianapolis from ten years ago.

Booher and two other inmates escaped July 12 through the underground tunnel system of the maximum-security prison in Michigan City, The Indianapolis Star reports.

Charles V. Smith, 45, another convicted killer from New Castle, was captured July 13 in southwestern Michigan, about eight miles from the Indiana prison.

The other escapee, convicted rapist Lance Battreal, 45, was arrested Tuesday at his mother's Southern Indiana home, Muncie Star Press reports.
