JOHNSTON COUNTY, OK -- A Johnston County woman has been arrested after authorities allegedly found an escaped inmate on her family's property.

According to an arrest affidavit, Sandi Torres has been charged with "harboring a fugitive from justice and obstructing an officer".

The Johnston County Sheriffs Office says Torres may have picked up 39-year-old Michael Pinnick after he escaped from a Pittsburg County Correctional Center.

After speaking with Torres, the sheriff's department was able to locate Pinnick in a trailer on a property near Milburn.

Pinnick was serving 8 years for burglary.

Torres is set to appear in court later this month.
