Authorities located a minimum-custody inmate who left his work release job-site Thursday evening. Rodney Nealy was captured by the Robeson County Sheriff's Office Friday evening.

Nealy worked for an electrical contractor in Robeson County and left his job-site around 6:30 p.m. in a light blue Ford Econoline van.

The sheriff's office picked him up in Lumberton just before 5 p.m. Authorities say Nealy will face an escape charge and possibly other charges.

Nealy was serving six to seven years for a string of financial crimes including forgery and larceny.

He was assigned to the minimum-security Robeson Correctional Center in Lumberton.
