MCALESTER, Okla. – An inmate who walked away from the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center in McAlester was captured.
Officials say 33-year-old Joe D. Andrus was discovered missing during a 10 a.m. count Wednesday.
Andrus was serving time for false impersonation and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
He was located by DOC Fugitive Apprehension and Investigations on U.S. 270 more than a mile away from the facility Wednesday night.
Officials say Andrus walked away from the facility and will now likely face a felony charge of escape.
The Jackie Brannon Correction Center is a minimum-security facility that houses more than 720 male inmates.
