SALEM, Ore. (AP) - An inmate who walked away from a mobile camp at the Stouts fire east of Canyonville is back in custody.

The state Department of Corrections says Kenneth Curtis Polchowski was arrested by Medford police Wednesday night.

Corrections staff discovered the 26-year-old inmate missing Sunday morning after a routine count.

Polchowski entered state prison in late January after he was convicted of identity theft and burglary in Lane County.
