MCINTOSH, Ala. — A state inmate who walked off a worksite in Creola is back in custody.
The Alabama Department of Corrections says agents captured 39-year-old Billie Joe Turner at about 3:30 p.m. Friday. He had been on the run since Wednesday.
Agents found Turner at a residence in McIntosh in Washington County where he surrendered without incident.
Turner had been assigned to the Mobile Work Release Center and a parole hearing in August was pending.
Turner is serving a 15-year sentence for a 2015 conviction of attempting to distribute a controlled substance in Mobile County. He now faces charges for the escape.
