One of three inmates who escaped from a Berks County prison Friday is back behind bars.

Police tracked down 28-year-old Ryan Celani at a Schuylkill Haven Burger King Monday morning.

Investigators say Celani and 22-year-old Jeremy Collazo escaped from the Wernersville Corrections Center in South Heidelberg Township shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday after Celani pulled a fire alarm.

Less than four hours later, police say 25-year-old Adam Murphy also pulled a fire alarm and escaped. Officials say he was last seen getting into a gold-colored Honda Civic with New York plates.

All three were charged with escape.

Officials say the escapes are similar to two that occurred in June when three inmates escaped during fire alarms.
