JOHNSTON COUNTY, N.C. — After nearly a week on the run, a man who escaped from the Johnston County Detention Center is back behind bars.

Authorities say 32-year-old Bryan Theodore Smith escaped by running out the kitchen delivery door around 5:15 a.m as a food staff member was receiving a milk delivery.

Friday evening, authorities found Smith at a Smithfield trailer park.

Deputies also arrested a woman and charged her with harboring a fugitive.
