An escaped inmate from the Hardin County Detention Center has been captured.

Robert W. Wilson, 23, of Elizabethtown, was located Saturday night by the Elizabethtown Police Department.

It is believed he walked away from custody on Oct. 5 while he was being moved and a sergeant with the detention center went to retrieve Wilson’s belongings before he was transported.

Wilson was lodged at the jail Oct. 1 for violating conditions of his bond release. He originally was indicted in April on charges of second-degree rape.

The case still is pending in Hardin Circuit Court.
