LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – An inmate who walked away from a minimum-security prison in Lexington in July was recaptured on Wednesday, according to officials at Blackburn Correctional Complex.
Investigators say 45-year old Clyde Rader was arrested just before 3:00 p.m. in Lexington. No other details surrounding his recapture were released by the prison.
Officials say Rader walked away from Blackburn Correctional Complex on July 25, 2016.
The Kentucky Department of Corrections says this was the second time Rader walked away from Blackburn, with the first escape coming in December 1997.
Court records show Rader was serving a 64-year sentence for robbery, burglary and escape.
He was lodged in the Fayette County Detention Center in Lexington following his arrest on Wednesday.
