The Iowa Department of Corrections says an inmate who escaped from a work detail in Keokuk, Iowa on Monday has been captured. Steven Leroy Adcock, a prison inmate assigned to the minimum security John Bennett Unit at Fort Madison, Iowa, was apprehended in Missouri on Wednesday.

According to the IDOC report, law enforcement officers arrested him following a short pursuit. There were no injuries. Police say Adcock was driving a stolen vehicle from Kansas City, Missouri at the time.

Adcock is currently being held in the Stoddard County Jail, Bloomfield, Missouri, and will appear in court Thursday for extradition proceedings.

He was admitted to prison on January 24, 2011 and was serving a maximum sentence of 16 years for the following crimes: Habitual Offender by Burglary-3rd degree (Johnson County); Burglary-3rd degree (Clayton County); Burglary-3rd degree (Muscatine County); Theft-2nd, Eluding, and two counts of drug possession (Polk County).

According to the Department of Corrections, prison work crews in the City of Keokuk have been in existence for 15 years or more. The current work detail consists of two crews of five offenders each, with one supervisor for every five offenders. The work involves mowing and grounds keeping at multiple cemeteries.
