SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Authorities in Minnehaha County are searching for a man who allegedly escaped from jail.

The sheriff’s office says Kai Conrad Hansen escaped from the corrections center Friday night and was last seen running away. He remained at large on Saturday.

Authorities say he had stripped off his jail-issue clothing and was likely wearing a black shirt and shorts or underwear at the time he fled. He’s been charged with several burglaries and thefts and authorities don’t believe the public is in danger.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office.
