An Ector County inmate is back behind bars after for walking off a work crew on Thursday morning.
18-year-old Ignacio Guerrero has been in jail for about week for violating his probation on a misdemeanor marijuana charge.
Authorities say he was on a work detail at the Ector County Annex on east 8th Street when he ran off around 10:25 a.m.
Deputies, police officers and State Troopers descended on the area to look for him.
Officers blocked off areas of north of 8th Street and brought in the K-9 unit.
After a couple of hours, they found Guerrero hiding the alley behind Payless Shoes across the street from the Annex.
He was taken into custody without any trouble.
