HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say they've captured the last of three inmates who escaped from a prison facility on the Alabama coast.

A statement from the Department of Corrections says federal marshals arrested 37-year-old Cory Allen Kingery in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover on Wednesday night.

Kingery fled a state work-release center in Loxley on Tuesday. He was among three prisoners who walked away from the minimum-security facility within a 24-hour period.

The other two men already have been captured.

Kingery is serving a two-year sentence for theft in Jefferson County.
