An Oklahoma jail escapee is back in custody, according to Sallisaw police.

Mark Wilson, 26, escaped April 26 from the Sallisaw City Jail inmate work crew, according to police.

His nearly 8-week taste of freedom ended shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday, June 22 when a Sallisaw police officer made a traffic stop on Farm Road.

Police said that during the traffic stop the driver and passenger lied to the officer about the passenger’s name.

After investigating, the officer learned that the passenger was really Mark Wilson.

The driver and Wilson were taken into custody, according to police.
