California — Authorities say an inmate with a skull tattooed on his face, who escaped last month from a work crew in central California, is back in custody.

The Fresno Bee reports police arrested 27-year-old Corey Hughes on Thursday at a home in Stockton.

Officers set up a perimeter and knocked on the door, but no one answered.

Stockton police then sent a police dog into the residence, and Hughes was apprehended.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment before being booked into San Joaquin County Jail.

Hughes was reported missing from a work crew near Interstate 5 in Stockton on November 27.

He had been serving time on a weapons charge and was due to be released in February.
