JACKSON, Miss. —

Authorities have captured a Noxubee County Community Work Center inmate who had failed to return from a weekend pass.

Mississippi Department of Corrections spokeswoman Tara Booth says John Jason Lee was arrested about midnight Monday in the Mathiston area.

The 44-year-old Lee is serving a 12-year sentence for convictions of burglary of a vehicle and vehicle theft from Clay and Webster counties.

Booth says Lee will be transported to Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl. He now faces an additional 5 years if convicted of escape.
