WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware officials say two offenders who escaped from a Wilmington corrections center are back in custody.

The Delaware Department of Corrections said the men were found together Tuesday morning in Wilmington and apprehended. Corrections officials had previously said the men escaped from the Plummer Community Corrections Center on July Fourth by climbing over a perimeter wall.

Officials identified the men as 21-year-old Daquan Brown and 26-year-old Mychal Williams.

Corrections officials had said Brown was serving a four-year sentence for a probation violation on an original charge of drug dealing.

Corrections officials had said Williams was serving a five-month sentence for a probation violation on an original charge of cocaine trafficking.

Officials say both men are now being held at the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in Wilmington.
