VINA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama inmate who walked away from his work site has been recaptured six days later.

Local news outlets report 47-year-old Jeffrey Ryan Davis was taken into custody Sunday afternoon in Vina by Franklin County sheriff's deputies and the Alabama Department of Corrections.

Davis left his assigned job location at Cast Products Inc. in Athens on April 1. The company hasn't said how Davis left.

Davis was sentenced in October 2017 for theft of property in Franklin County. Court documents also show he was serving more than 12 years in prison on burglary charges.

It's the second escape by a work release inmate from Cast Products in less than two months. Inmate Joseph Davis walked away from his job in February, but was caught a short time later.
