Cullman County Sheriff's Office deputies have captured a fugitive inmate who walked off his work release detail Thursday afternoon. 

Christopher Williams, a non-violent offender who was scheduled to be released within days, was arrested after being located in Belmont, Miss. 

"We have been following leads on the suspect from almost the moment he walked off and we were constantly getting tips on his location and in the end, this suspect could not outrun the deputies actively in the field searching for him," said Sheriff Matt Gentry. 

The Sheriff thanks all Mississippi Law Enforcement who assisted in the arrest of Williams.
