Inmate Captured After a Month on the Run

A 20-year-old inmate has been captured after a month on the run.

Marion County Sheriff's deputies say they received a tip Sunday that Alvin J. Richardson was in the area. He was taken into custody without incident.

The Ocala Star Banner reports Richardson escaped from the Santa Fe Bridge Community Release Center in Alachua County on July 1.

Richardson was serving a 15-month sentence for strong arm robbery.

He was being held without bond at the Marion County Jail.
