An inmate who escaped from Piedmont Correctional Institution in Salisbury Monday has been captured.
The Department of Correction says 35-year-old Ronald Pritt was on a work assignment at Piedmont Correctional Institution in Salisbury. They say he was working as a groundskeeper outside the fence on prison property when he was last seen around 2:30 p.m.
Pritt was captured around 9:45 p.m. in the woods less than a mile from the facility.
Pritt was serving a three year sentence for habitual drunk driving and was due to be released in July.
Pritt now faces a felony escape charge.
