The Caroline County Sheriff's Office confirmed they captured Pierot Fangamou Thursday morning. A woman told WRIC that she called 911 after spotting the detainee in his blue jumpsuit.

Sheriff's officials said Fangamou scaled the perimeter fence of the Caroline Detention Facility the day before.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement statement obtained by news outlets states Fangamou has been in ICE custody since May, when he was released pending trial on criminal charges in Prince William County. ICE officials say he also has multiple misdemeanor convictions.
