A convict who escaped from the Robinson Correctional Center before the weekend, is back in custody.
Police say Jared Carter is being held in the Crawford County jail. Carter was walking down the street in Palestine, Illinois when he the village's chief of police and other officers approached him. When the police asked him for ID he just said "I'm who you're looking for" and surrendered.
Carter was an inmate-trustee at the Robinson Correctional Center who was allowed to work on prison grounds outside the walls. He was working on Friday when authorities say he walked away.
Palestine is in Eastern Illinois near the Indiana state line.
