NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Authorities have captured an escaped South Carolina inmate after less than a day on the run.
Corrections Department spokesman Josh Gelinas says 22-year-old Evan Lamar Gamble was arrested around 1 p.m. on Tuesday in North Charleston.
Prison officials say Gamble was reported missing shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday from the minimum-security Coastal Pre-Release Center in North Charleston.
Gamble had been serving a 2-year sentence for shoplifting in Georgetown County since September.
Gamble is now charged with escape, which carries up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
