COVINGTON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

An escaped convict from South Alabama is back behind bars - after more than nine years on the run.

Charles Daniel Pierce, 61, was booked in the Orange County Jail in Florida last week.

Investigators said he's been on the run since walking away from a work release site in 2005.

Pierce was busted for giving officers false identification. Investigators soon discovered his true identity and quickly made the arrest.

Covington County officials said Pierce will be brought back to their jurisdiction soon.
