NC Officials Capture Escaped Inmate

Police say they have caught an inmate who escaped last month from a prison in western North Carolina.

The state Corrections Department said 45-year-old Xavier Hosea Shaw was arrested Saturday in Raleigh.

Xavier Shaw had been serving a six-year sentence at Alexander Correctional Institution after being convicted of kidnapping and robbery. He was on a work-assignment to build a minimum-security facility at the prison when he went missing June 30.

Shaw's sentence would have ended Aug. 30, but he has charges pending in Wake County in a January bank robbery. Authorities said Shaw will be taken to Central Prison in Raleigh and could face additional charges related to his escape.
