"He took out the racks and made himself a nice cubby hole," said Chief Deputy Glenn Blank of the Jasper County Sheriff's office in East Texas.

The inmate, Wesley Evans, 20, was captured and was taken back into custody after an escape that lasted about 24 hours. He is expected to face charges for the escape attempt.
