On Wednesday morning, Portland police thanked a citizen who spotted Munter. Officers arrested him at a 7-Eleven at Southeast 82nd Avenue and Powell Boulevard.

Officials are still searching for the other escaped inmate, Petrovskiy.

Both inmates had been held at the Olympic Corrections Center near Forks, Washington.
