An inmate who walked off a work detail Thursday afternoon in central Georgia has been recaptured.

James Doyle Moss, 39, walked off a supervised off-site work detail at the Cordele State Farmers Market at 1901 U.S. Highway 41 N about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the Crisp County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff’s office said they were able to capture him after about seven hours of being on the run. No word on how they took him back into custody.

Moss was assigned to Wilcox State Prison to serve time for burglary out of Bartow County and fleeing to elude out of Forsyth County, both from July 2015, according to the Department of Corrections.
