An inmate who walked away this morning from minimum supervision at California State Prison-Sacramento in Folsom has been captured, prison officials report.
Zachary Dickens, 27, who was serving a sentence for injuring his spouse, was captured in Sacramento County by the Special Service Unit about 5:20 p.m.. He surrendered without resistance, officials said.
California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation special agents took custody of Dickens and will be transporting him back to the prison.
Dickens was reported missing from his bunk in a dorm at 6:30 a.m. Dickens entered the state prison system March 18, 2010 from Sacramento County and was serving a four-year term.
He was scheduled to be released Dec. 22, 2011.
The prison houses maximum-security inmates serving long sentences and those who have been hard to control. The prison also has minimum-supervision inmates, such as Dickens, outside the institution's perimeter to help with maintenance and other tasks.
