HARTFORD, Vt. (AP) - Authorities say a 28-year-old sex offender who escaped from furlough supervision about a week ago has been captured.

The Hartford Police Department says Dale Adams Jr., was taken into custody without incident Saturday in White River Junction. He’s been turned over to the state Department of Corrections, which transported him to the Southern State Correctional Center in Springfield.

Adams is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. It wasn’t immediately known if he’s represented by a lawyer.

Corrections officials placed Adams on escape status May 9 after he did not return to his approved home in Perkinsville on May 6.

Authorities say Adams was under supervision for a sex-related crime and was considered at high risk for committing another sexual offense.
