William Robert Emory, 37, was captured at a home on Holly Tree Road in Wilmington at about 4:30 p.m. Monday, police there said.
Emory was serving a two-year, three-month sentence at the Hoke Correctional Institution for obtaining property by false pretense. He was scheduled for release on May 30, according to Department of Correction records.
On March 20, Emory jumped a fence at the minimum-custody facility near Raeford and was picked up by James Scott Lipham, authorities said.
Lipham was charged three days later with harboring a fugitive.
