OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma prison officials say an inmate who walked away from a minimum security facility in Granite has been captured in Texas.

Oklahoma Department of Corrections spokeswoman Terri Watkins says 26-year-old Aaron Kelsey was arrested without incident Friday afternoon at an acquaintance's house in Denison, Texas.

Kelsey was discovered missing Wednesday during a 6 p.m. head count at a minimum security facility at the Oklahoma State Reformatory in Granite. Watkins said Kelsey "basically walked away."

Prison records show Kelsey was serving time for convictions in Bryan County of second-degree burglary, possession of a firearm during probation, and use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon.

Watkins says Kelsey is being held in the Grayson County, Texas, Jail awaiting extradition.
