UPDATED: Inmate Captured
Department of Public Safety officers captured escaped inmate Jonathan Dixon at 10:35 this morning in a building on Auction Drive, just off I-85 in Salisbury. Members of the Prison Emergency Response Team were searching in the area when they noticed a broken window at a local business. Upon entering the building, they located inmate Dixon and he surrendered without resistance.
Dixon escaped Sunday night from the minimum-security unit of Piedmont Correctional Institution. He was found only a few miles from where he escaped.
Dixon will face charges for escape from prison as well as additional charges for break-ins and burglaries he committed while on the run.
