Work release escapee caught

A missing work release inmate was captured by police last night. 29-year old John Carter failed to report back to the Charleston Work Release Center of the WV Division of Corrections after he was on furlough at his father's home. He was taken into custody last night in the East Lynn area of Wayne County. He's in the work release program in connection with arson charges involving church fires in Wayne County in 2002. He'll be arraigned in Wayne County Magistrate Court on the escape charges.
