LEBANON, Ohio — The second inmate who escaped from Community Corrections Center in Turtlecreek Township last week has been recaptured.

James Warren Adams III was discovered missing from the facility, which is administered by the Talbert House, at about 3 a.m. Friday, deputies previously said. He is now back in the custody of the Warren County Sheriff's Office, they said Wednesday.

Deputies didn't specify where Adams was found. He will be charged with escape and is being held in the Warren County Jail pending arraignment.

A second inmate also escaped from the same facility that same morning, but he was discovered missing several hours earlier. Logan Michael Lee Fithen was recaptured the same day and is now also facing an escape charge, deputies said.
