SALEM, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon Department of Corrections says police have captured an inmate who walked away from a prison work crew in Salem.

William Beebe was arrested in Salem Thursday afternoon, two days after he was reported missing from a 10-man crew doing work near an elementary school.

The 38-year-old inmate entered the Santiam Correctional Institution in Salem this summer after he was convicted in Marion County of unauthorized use of a vehicle. His earliest release date is April 6, 2017.
