A convict who escaped from the Robinson Correctional Center before the weekend, is back in custody.
Police say Jared Carter is being held in the Crawford County jail. Carter was walking down the street in Palestine, Illinois when he the village's chief of police and other officers approached him. When the police asked him for ID he just said "I'm who you're looking for" and surrendered.
Carter was an inmate-trustee at the Robinson Correctional Center who was allowed to work on prison grounds outside the walls. He was working on Friday when authorities say he walked away.
Palestine is in Eastern Illinois near the Indiana state line.

STEELVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri murder case will hinge on claims of self-defense and whether a property owner had the right to shoot a canoer who may have intruded on his land.
James Crocker had grown weary of the people encroaching on his property along the Meramec River. A nasty confrontation in July ended when Crocker allegedly shot and killed Paul Dart Jr., who was on a canoe trip.
Defense attorney Michael Bert says Crocker is covered by the state's castle doctrine, which allows the use of deadly force to protect property. Bert says Crocker also felt his life was in danger.
Prosecutors cited witnesses who said Crocker flew into a rage and opened fire after a man relieved himself near his yard. He has been charged with second-degree murder.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri teachers union says it is spending at least $100,000 on commercials urging state lawmakers to uphold the governor's veto of an income tax cut.
The Missouri chapter of the National Education Association says the TV and radio spots began running Tuesday and will continue for a week. The ads assert the tax cut would benefit "corporate special interests" while "stealing money from our schools."
Lawmakers are to convene Sept. 11 to decide whether to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto.
Supporters of the legislation have been running their own ads for weeks. They have been financed largely by nearly $2.4 million in contributions from retired investment firm executive Rex Sinquefield.
