St. Martinville prisoner captured after leaving work detail

A St. Martinville prisoner who walked away from a work detail Tuesday morning was captured nearby a short time later, officials said.

Delanius Narcisse, 23, of St. Martinville, left the other prisoners working near Washington Street and was captured a short distance away on Governor Mouton Street, spokeswoman Maj. Ginny Higgins said in a release.

Narcisse now faces charges in addition to the probation violation after a 2010 simple burglary conviction that netted him an eight-year sentence.
