Prisoner Who Escaped Car Back in Custody

The U.S. Marshals Service says a woman who escaping from a police cruiser during a prisoner transport in New Hampshire has been captured.

Police say 35-year-old Tamara Ipock was being transported to a different jail when she escaped from her handcuffs at an intersection in Laconia. She was wearing her orange prison jumpsuit when she ran away Thursday, according to authorities.

Ipock was taken into custody at about 11:30 a.m. Friday in Concord. Details on her capture weren't immediately known.

Ipock has pending charges for possession of narcotics. Perkins says her last known address was in Laconia, but she has not lived in the area for several years.

Authorities had said she is nonviolent and not an active threat to the public.
