MONTGOMERY, Ala. – An Alabama inmate who escaped in October is back in custody.

Vernell Sanders, 52, had been on the run since his escape from the Red Eagle Correctional Work Facility, a minimum-security facility, where he had been serving time for robbery, assault and receiving stolen property.

According to a news release from CrimeStoppers, Sanders was captured last week in Birmingham. The release says Sanders was caught after Birmingham Police stopped him while investigating a call of a suspicious person.
