DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Dallas County inmate has been re-captured after a few hours on the run.  

According to officials, Daniel Brown had been assigned to work in the kitchen and apparently just walked away Sunday morning - raising the question as to how he was not more closely supervised considering he had holds on him from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Harris County and Missouri.

Reports say he slipped out from the secure kitchen of the jail to the loading dock where he escaped with the help of a woman on the outside.

Both were caught last night at a Grand Prairie motel.
