EDINBURGH — Johnson County deputies recaptured a prisoner Wednesday, the day after he allegedly escaped from the Atterbury Correctional Center.
Johnson County Sheriff’s Office deputies captured Brian Poland, 32, who allegedly ran away from the minimum-security correctional facility near Edinburgh in southern Johnson County.
Police were notified immediately after Poland was reported missing about 9 p.m. Tuesday.
A resident called 911 on Wednesday morning after seeing a man near Nineveh in an orange jumpsuit with the acronym for Indiana Department of Correction printed on it, Sheriff Doug Cox said. Sheriff’s deputies searched the woods nearby and found Poland in his prison garb about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Poland had been sentenced to two years for theft but also has a decade-long record of robbery and burglary convictions, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
He was scheduled to be released in January, but his prison term likely will be extended, Indiana Department of Correction spokesman Brian Dobbs said. Poland will have to serve any time he had been granted off for good behavior and could face additional charges, Dobbs said.
Poland is going to be transferred to a higher-security state facility, Dobbs said.
