Department of Correction captures escapee

 CHAPEL HILL - A Division of Prisons search team captured Orange Correctional Center escapee Roderick Baldwin Tuesday afternoon at a Durham apartment complex.

 An individual who knew Baldwin recognized him in the vicinity of the apartments and contacted the prison. The Division of Prisons’ Fugitive Squad picked him up without incident at 3:12 p.m. and returned him to Orange Correctional Center

 Baldwin, 45, had fled Saturday night from a work release job at a Chapel Hill bagel shop after stealing a truck and some cash. The van was recovered Monday morning at a truck stop on Interstate 40 near the border of Alamance and Orange counties.

 Serving two consecutive 5-year, 10-month sentences as a habitual felon, Baldwin had been scheduled for release from prison in June 2011.
