FOUKE, Arkansas — Arkansas prison officials say they have caught an escaped inmate who walked away from a work crew last week.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Community Correction said officers caught 35-year-old Jeremy Pifer on Wednesday hiding in a shed near Fouke in southwestern Arkansas. Spokeswoman Dina Tyler said Pifer will go to Miller County where he will be questioned and then will be transferred to the Department of Correction.

Arkansas State Police used tracking dogs and a helicopter to search for Pifer Tuesday after he was spotted at a convenience store.

He had been missing since Thursday, when he walked away from a work crew he was part of near Fouke.

Pifer was being held for a parole violation after being convicted in 2010 in Benton County of residential burglary.
