North Platte, NE (The Weekly Vice) - Dylan Aufdengarten, a 27-year-old escapee from the Lincoln County Detention Center, was promptly returned to jail after his girlfriend getaway driver kicked him out of her car following an argument.
According to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, Aufdengarten was working at the North Platte Animal Shelter as part of a work program when he slipped away and got into a vehicle that was driven by his girlfriend, 29-year-old Jennifer Harmon.
Investigators say the shelter staff was left short handed when someone called in a bogus report that a vicious dog was on the loose. Staff notified the Sheriff's Office of Aufdengarten's escape a short time after he fled the premises.
A manhunt was launched which involved the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, North Platte Police and the Nebraska State Patrol.
During the search investigators spoke with Harmon, who admitted to being the getaway driver during Aufdengarten's escape. She also stated that she booted Aufdengarten out of her car five minutes after picking him up because he wouldn't stop arguing with her.
Harmon directed authorities to the location where she dropped Aufdengarten off. Aufdengarted was located and returned to custody a short time later.
Aufdengarted was booked into jail on a new felony charge of Escape From Custody. He was just 30 days from the completion of his sentence when he was booked into jail on the fresh charge.
Jennifer Harmon was booked into jail on a felony charge of Aiding and Abetting Escape.
