Prison officials say a pair of inmates who walked away Wednesday from the Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite are back in custody.

A state game warden captured 22-year-old Jon Elliot, shortly after he escaped.  Elliot is serving a four year sentence out of LeFlore County for conspiracy to commit grand larceny.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections located 29-year-old Jody Elmore and 32-year-old Chad Adams in rural Jackson County.

Jody Elmore is serving a three year sentence for forgery out of McIntosh County and Chad Adams is serving a seven year sentence for carrying contraband into a Pottawatomie County jail.
