Man who fled work-release center nabbed in Mobile

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - An escapee has been captured in Mobile - a
day after he was reported missing from a prison work-release center
in Childersburg.

Police said 22-year-old Christopher Shane Gordon was captured
Thursday after an officer noticed a van with the word
"Childersburg" on the side of it.

Gordon was taken to Mobile County Metro Jail and initially
charged with receiving stolen property.

Gordon has an arrest record in the Mobile area, including
charges of receiving stolen property, breaking and entering, and
possession of a controlled substance.

He was assigned to the Childersburg center in March. It was not
immediately known if he has a lawyer.
