A work-release inmate who decided not to return to York County Prison spent 10 days on the lam before being caught in southern York County, state police said.

James Brian Prado, 29, of no fixed address, should have returned to the prison on Sept. 21, and a felony arrest warrant was issued for him when he didn't, police said.

Troopers tracked down Prado and arrested him Tuesday at a home in the 800 block of Dellinger School Road in Chanceford Township, police said.

At the time of his capture, Prado was in possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, and he will be charged with those offenses, police said.
