NORTH BEND, Ore. (AP) - Officials say an inmate escaped from a minimum security prison in North Bend and was captured within a few hours.

Officials say staff at Shutter Creek Correctional Institution discovered 34-year-old Justin Alley missing at about 7:20 p.m. Thursday. Officials say he was captured nearby at about 9:45 p.m.

Alley entered custody in January 2016, on one count of first-degree burglary in Lane County. The earliest he could be released is May 2018.

Oregon Department of Corrections spokeswoman Betty Bernt says how Alley escaped wasn’t immediately clear and that she expects there will be a full investigation.
