A former Omaha resident who escaped custody in Council Bluffs last November had four years and three months added to his sentence on Wednesday.

Twenty-five-year-old Princeton Baker was completing a 27-month sentence for attempted robbery at a halfway house when he complained of feeling ill. While being taken back from a medical facility to the halfway house, Baker jumped from a moving vehicle and tried to take several cars before being caught by Council Bluffs police.

U.S. District Judge James Gritzner ordered that the 51 months be served consecutively to the prison time remaining on the original sentence. He also ordered Baker to then serve three years of supervised release.
