32-year-old Gary Sneed was being sought by Pontotoc County and Lee County authorities who said he walked away from a Mississippi Department of Corrections work program on Wednesday.

The Florida Highway Patrol said troopers arrested him Saturday when they spotted a stolen car that had stopped along Interstate 75 in the Ocala area.

A Marion County, Florida, sheriff's deputy also arrested Holly Morrison after a search nearby.

They said she stole the car in Mississippi and helped Sneed make his escape.
