An inmate at the Wynne Unit in Huntsville is now back behind bars.
Walker County Authorities say Michael McCumber was found riding a bike near the Madison/Walker County Line around 10 Monday night.

Prison officials said convicted burglar and robber McCumber, 55, was a trusty who was noticed missing late Monday afternoon when officers went to pick him up at the end of his work shift. He was a groundskeeper at the employee housing area of the prison on the north side of Huntsville.

Felony escape charges will be added to his rap sheet.
