ATOKA COUNTY, OK -- An inmate that escaped from the Mac Alford correctional center earlier today is back behind bars.

The Department of Corrections says just after one this afternoon prison staff saw inmate Larry Roberts outside the facility where he may have been picking up contraband.  A short time later he was gone.  

We don't have many details about his capture, but the Atoka County Sheriff's office has confirmed that he is now back in prison.   

Roberts is serving a 14 year sentence for manufacturing methamphetamine.  No word if he will now face additional charges.
