McCook, NE (AP) - A 21-year-old Wyoming man who escaped Nebraska's Work Ethic Camp has been given two to three more years in prison.

The McCook Daily Gazette says Drew Steier was sentenced last week in Red Willow District Court. He's pleaded guilty to felony escape and theft. His two sentences are to be served at the same time.

Authorities say Steier scaled the perimeter fence at the camp and made it on foot to McCook, where he stole a car. He was arrested a few weeks later in Evanston, Wyo.

At the time of his escape, Steier had served less than a year of an 18- to 36-month sentence for attempted robbery at a bank in Wallace, Neb.

He and his accomplice, 54-year-old Tracy Black, are both from Evanston, Wyo.
