At about 2:17 p.m. today, the Florida Department of Corrections reported to Historic City News in St Augustine that they had located their escaped prisoner, 54 year-old Dean R Adams who has been in and out of prison in Florida on five occasions since June 1978.

Despite a lengthy arrest record and more than a dozen convictions, Adams was classified as a minimum risk prisoner while he was serving two concurrent five-year sentences for committing two felony crimes in St Johns County in August 2010.

According to reports of the capture, Adams was still in possession of the stolen Department of Corrections vehicle that he used to make good his escape.
