ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

A man who escaped from a work detail with the Colquitt County Prison has been captured in Atlanta.

According to a report, state fugitive squad agents took Kenneth Martin Anderson into custody in the Atlanta metro area.

He was captured around 9 p.m. Tuesday night.

Anderson had been on the run since Friday, when officials said he escaped from a work detail at the West View Cemetery.
