A Butler County Jail inmate who vanished last week from a work detail in Morgantown was captured Saturday afternoon in Bowling Green.

Bowling Green police arrested Alan David Manning, 52, at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Walgreens, 1145 U.S. 31-W By-Pass, after someone reported spotting Manning, according to Officer Barry Pruitt, spokesman for the Bowling Green Police Department.

Manning was lodged Saturday in the Warren County Regional Jail, where he was being held on a $100,000 bond on a charge of second-degree escape, but he was to eventually return to the Butler County Jail.

On Wednesday morning, Manning disappeared from a work detail at Charles Black City Park in Morgantown.

He was in Butler County Jail on charges of second-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking, criminal mischief and being a first-degree persistent felony offender. Those charges are pending in Butler Circuit Court.
