Authorities say two inmates at a northeastern Pennsylvania prison have been captured after briefly escaping while out on work-release.

Officials say the two Luzerne County Correctional Facility inmates walked away from work-release Sunday afternoon. But police say they were apprehended near the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino and returned to the prison shortly after 4 p.m.

Plains Township police Sgt. Dave Abraham says Plains Township police captured one prisoner and Wilkes-Barre police captured the other.

The names of the two men were not immediately released.
