LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A West Texas jail trustee who fled while on work duty has been captured in New Mexico.

Curry County, New Mexico, jail records show Randy Allen Williams was being held without bond Friday and faces return to Lubbock.

Investigators say Williams, who turned 50 on Friday, fled from the jail garage on Tuesday by setting a fire behind the building.

Lubbock County Sheriff Kelly Rowe says Williams was caught Thursday afternoon in Clovis, New Mexico, at a recycling business.

Williams was arrested last month on charges of driving while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance and theft. Authorities say Williams now faces additional charges of arson, escape and theft.
