An escaped inmate from Creola has been captured and booked into Mobile Metro Jail.

Elbert Randall Reed, 29, was caught Monday, January 20 and is now facing a second degree escape charge.

Gary Davis with the Creola Police Department tells FOX10 News Reed was only serving time for two unpaid citations in Creola when he escaped the jail.

Police say Reed was allowed weekly visitations and was being visited by his girlfriend more than a week ago when it happened.

After the visitation, Police say Reed ran out the door and jumped into his girlfriend’s car.

It is unclear how Reed was found, but Creola Police tell FOX10 Mt. Vernon Police spotted him and took action.
