An inmate who escaped from a south Alabama work release facility was caught Sunday, state corrections officials said.
DeKalb County Sheriff's Office deputies found Jonah Andrew Salers, 23, in a stolen vehicle on County Road 328 outside Geraldine around 6:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the Alabama Department of Corrections.
Corrections officials said Salers left Loxley Work Release Center in Baldwin County early Wednesday morning. He was serving a four-year sentence for third-degree burglary out of Etowah County.
Salers was taken into custody without incident, officials said.
He is now facing escape and first-degree theft charges.
