Escaped inmate in Roxboro recaptured

ROXBORO, NC (WTVD) -- Law enforcement officers have captured an inmate who left the Roxboro Satellite Training Center Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the North Carolina Department of Public Safety said the center is a former state prison now used for daily educational classes and substance abuse treatment classes for inmates. About 100 inmates from Dan River Prison Work Farm in Yanceyville attend classes there daily.

Jonathan Kee, 34, is a minimum-custody inmate who was serving a four-year sentence for possession of a firearm by a felon and for drug related convictions. He was due for release in August 2018.

Kee was found at his home in Stanley County around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

He will now face charges for felony escape from prison.
