LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities have recaptured an inmate who escaped last month from a Los Angeles jail.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says police arrested Christopher Lee Brown without incident Wednesday night.

Spokesman Lt. David Oliva says the 37-year-old inmate was seen outside a community center near the intersection of Pico and Lincoln boulevards.

Brown escaped from the Twin Towers Correctional Facility by posing as another inmate on March 12.

He had been sentenced to more than four years in prison for stealing laptop computers from the Alhambra office of a hospital chain.

Oliva says that Brown is now facing an escape charge.

The department’s release did not mention a $20,000 reward offered recently for information leading to Brown’s capture.
