PENDLETON, Ind. (AP) – An inmate who escaped from a minimum-security dormitory at a Central Indiana prison was captured more than 100 miles away Monday.

Authorities had been searching Monday for 28-year-old Charles Adams, who was determined to be missing Sunday night from the dormitory that's outside the maximum-security area of the Pendleton Correctional Facility.

Adams was reportedly found Monday evening in Angola, Indiana. Angola is in northeastern Indiana about 130 miles from Pendleton along I-69.

State records show Adams was serving a nearly 2-year sentence for theft and receiving stolen property from an October conviction in northeastern Indiana's Steuben County. Adams is described as a white male, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, about 150 pounds several tattoos on his face and neck.
