Inmate from Mobile County escapes for two hours, recaptured

Mobile County

An Alabama inmate convicted in Mobile County is back in custody after a very short escape.  John Henry McAdams reportedly escaped from the Work Release Center in Alexander City Friday night at 7:30.  

According to a news release from the Alabama Department of Corrections he was recaptured less than two hours later.  His run from the law was so short it doesn’t appear ALDOC sent a medial alert that he escaped before he was found again.  McAdams was sentenced last year in Mobile County on charges of chemical possession and intent to manufacture.
