FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Police in Fort Collins caught a Colorado Correctional Center inmate escapee who was serving a 30-day sentence before walking away from a work crew Wednesday.

Cody Harris, 27, was apprehended without incident in Fort Collins Thursday evening, the Colorado Department of Corrections tweeted.
