An escaped inmate who has been on the run for nearly three months is now back in custody.

The Oregon Department of Corrections said 25-year-old Hilario Lopez was caught Monday.  

Lopez walked away from the Mill Creek Correctional Facility in Salem on Oct. 22.  

He had been in Department of Corrections custody since February 2011 on two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of felon in possession of a weapon in Marion County. His earliest release date would have been March 2018.

Authorities said he was taken into custody at 4:15 p.m. Monday in Salem and booked in the Marion County Jail.

Details regarding his re-arrest were not released by the Oregon Department of Corrections.
