JEFFERSONVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials in central Georgia say an inmate who escaped through a hole in a shower wall has been recaptured.

Twiggs County Sheriff's officials say 45-year-old Tony Harvis Criswell escaped Saturday night and was recaptured without incident Tuesday.

Criswell is accused of escaping by pulling a shower head out of a wall and making a hole large enough to get through. Authorities say he then scaled the fence and got away.

Criswell was awaiting trial on charges of stalking, terroristic threats, criminal trespass, loitering and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
