NEOSHO, Mo. (AP) – Authorities have captured an escaped Oklahoma prisoner who wrecked a stolen truck in Missouri before fleeing on foot.

The Newton County, Missouri, Sheriff’s Office says 24-year-old Walter Blount was arrested Wednesday morning. He was among three suspects who were caught with stolen items a week ago, more than 200 miles away in Moore, Oklahoma, at the scene of a car break-in. Police there say he managed to dive through the window of a patrol car and steal a bike and then a truck.

He came to the attention of Missouri authorities Tuesday after they say he used stolen credit cards in the town of Neosho. He is accused of fleeing in the stolen truck, which he crashed before running into the woods.

No details have been released about his arrest.
