Inmate presumed escaped found inside Alabama prison
BRENT, Ala. (AP) — Officials say an inmate who was thought to have escaped was found hiding inside an Alabama prison.
The Alabama Department of Corrections put out a notice Monday saying 32-year-old Timothy Wayne Johnson had escaped from the Bibb County prison in Brent.
But the agency says Johnson was found hiding in an unauthorized area of the prison hours later. They say he cooperated with officers and was detained without incident.
Johnson is serving 35 years on a first-degree criminal mischief conviction out of Mobile County.
