The Texas Department of Criminal Justice located a trusty about eight hours after he escaped from the Johnston Unit near Winnsboro after he was believed to have walked off a work assignment outside the secure perimeter of the prison on Monday.
Alvin Elliott, 25, was apprehended without incident when he was found by TDCJ search teams at about 4:15 p.m. about 2 miles from County Road 4400 in Winnsboro, where he was last seen at about 8:15 a.m., according to the department's social media page.
TDCJ said Elliott is a probationer who has been assigned to Johnston as a condition of his probation since June 24. He was convicted of burglary of a habitation out of Morris County, according to the department of criminal justice.
Elliott will likely face additional charges, according to the department.
