Jail guards in the US state of Georgia searching for an escaped inmate did not have to look very far - the fugitive was caught sneaking back into prison.
Guards spotted Harry Jackson, 25, trying to creep back in with 14 packs of cigarettes allegedly stolen from a nearby store.
The alarm had been raised earlier after a jail door was found unlocked.
He had opened a door to the exercise yard and climbed an outer fence to get away, Sheriff Tommy Gregory said.
Jackson now faces new charges of breaking out of prison and burglary, reported AP news agency.
He was in jail in Woodbine, Camden County, on charges including possession of a controlled substance and violating probation, reported AP.
