An inmate is back behind bars after a few hours of freedom early Friday morning.

The Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff’s Office reported Jarred Brown, 29, escaped from the Pointe Coupee Parish Detention Center around 2:15 a.m. while he was being booked.

Officials said Brown was able to get out because the operator didn’t make the proper identification before opening a door.

They added Brown was captured around 6 a.m. Authorities did not report what crime Brown was charged with when he escaped.

The Angola Chase Team, Baton Rouge Police Department Aviation Unit, West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office, New Roads Police Department, and Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff’s Office were involved in the search for Brown.
