A prisoner who escaped Wednesday from a prison in northwest Indiana was taken back into custody later that night, police said.

Police found Travis Hornett in a vacant Beverly Shore home that he forcibly entered to evade capture, the Times of Northwest Indiana reported. He surrendered without resistance.

Hornett, 39, fled from the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City about 11:10 a.m., the Michigan City police department said in a statement.

He was working outside with a maintenance crew when he fled the facility’s low-security housing unit, the NWI Times reported. Hornett had been sentenced in September 2018 on a felony burglary charge.
