Arkansas inmate recaptured after 32 years on the run

Steven Dishman, 60, was arrested at a home in Springdale, in the northwestern part of the state. He was discovered Sunday at a home in Springdale, Arkansas.

A prisoner on the run for more than 30 years has finally been recaptured.

He was originally arrested for theft of property and burglary, according to Solomon Graves, the Arkansas Department of Corrections Public Information Officer.

Dishman was convicted of burglary in 1984 in Washington County and was eligible for parole in 1987, a spokesman for the Arkansas Department of Corrections told ABC News.

Shirley Jones told The Associated Press on Monday that her son has been living in southern Arkansas, but would not say exactly where Dishman had been been living or for how long.

Following the attacks, the Israeli government took a number of punitive measures against Palestinian residents in the West Bank. Israeli police stand around a body of a Palestinian after the attack in Jerusalem's occupied Old City on Friday.

There are now four escapees still on the run from various Arkansas prisons.

Special agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division have begun to question individuals who may have known Dishman but by a different name, according to Arkansas State Police.

Taylor said Dishman was arrested without incident, taken to the Police Department and booked in and turned over the Arkansas Department of Correction.

Steven Dishman, 60, went on the run on 28 May 1985 while serving seven years for burglary and theft of property.
