NORTH BEND, Oregon — State officials say two inmates who jumped a fence at a minimum-security prison in Coos County have been recaptured.

The state Department of Corrections says one was taken into custody about 1:30 a.m. Monday near Lakeside. That's about 15 miles north of the Shutter Creek Correctional Institution in North Bend.

He was identified as 39-year-old Daniel Oliver Fullmer, who was serving time from Jackson County for methamphetamine possession and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The agency says 44-year-old Harlan Earl Brown was captured nine hours later at Coos Bay. He was serving time from Clackamas County for burglary and theft.

The two escaped Sunday morning.

The state website says Shutter Creek has an inmate population of about 280.
