LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) Authorities say a state prison trusty who escaped from a crew picking up litter in Vinton has been caught in Houston.

Police say 19-year-old Jamaul LeBleu of the Church Point area was arrested Friday, with a car stolen earlier Friday from Vinton.

Police say Texas police were notified that he might be heading there after the car was seen heading west on Interstate 10.

LeBleu was serving a four-year sentence for simple burglary.

After he escaped Wednesday, schools in Vinton were locked down and students kept inside.
