CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Department of Corrections officials say a minimum-custody inmate who walked away from an off-site work crew in Casa Grande is back in custody.

They say 38-year-old Joshua Speedling walked away from the crew at 8 p.m. Wednesday and that state and local law enforcement agencies were notified at that time.

The U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force apprehended Speedling on Thursday afternoon near Metrocenter Mall in Phoenix.
