An escapee from the Regina Correctional Centre has been recaptured.

Officials say Shaun William Wilton was arrested Tuesday night in Regina.

Wilton walked away from a work site outside the jail's perimeter fence on Monday afternoon, leading to a request for the public's help in finding him.

Corrections officials say they are reviewing his escape to try to prevent another from happening.

Wilton had been serving a one-year sentence for possession of firearms, possession of stolen property and failing to comply.
