Police have captured an inmate who escaped from the Southhampton County Jail.
Media outlets report that 47-year-old Sherman Hix was hiding in a farm vehicle when deputies found him Sunday morning.
Southhampton County sheriff's Maj. Gene Drewery says Hix resisted arrest but there were no injuries. Drewery says Hix escaped Saturday morning after he was let out of his cell to work.
Hix was in custody at the jail for burglary and grand larceny.
