The Alabama Department of Corrections says the inmate who escaped on work release in Colbert County has been recaptured.
Xavier Armstead walked away from his worksite in Tuscumbia on Monday afternoon. He was recaptured in Florence Wednesday at 9 a.m.
Armstead has been in custody since 2016 on a burglary charge in Lauderdale County. After looking through court documents, we found he's had several burglary charges. He was also charged with receiving stolen property and breaking and entering.
