Posted January 24, 2011 9:24 p.m. EST

— An inmate who escaped from Morrison Correctional Institution in Hoffman earlier this month was taken into custody Monday night, authorities said.

Keith Sharod Moore, 21, left the minimum-security facility Jan. 14.

Dept. of Corrections officers had been following leads that Moore was in the Aberdeen-Southern Pines area Monday. Around 7 p.m., officers spotted Moore and arrested him without incident. 

Moore was serving 8 to 10 months for possession of stolen goods. He was convicted in Caldwell County in November. 

He will now face escape charges, authorities said.
