COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) – Iowa authorities have recaptured a man who escaped from a work release program in Council Bluffs over the weekend.  Fred Scaletta with the Iowa Department of Corrections says 56-year-old Carroll Wayne Walker was arrested on Sunday, and is being held in the Pottawattamie County jail.

Walker failed to report to work and didn’t return to the work release facility on Friday. He escaped less than a month after the Parole Board allowed him to transfer there on March 1.  Walker is in the middle of a ten-year sentence for second-degree robbery that he began serving in 2006.
