Escaped prisoner caught breaking back in to Texas jail

A federal inmate in Texas has been busted breaking back into prison with a duffle bag of snacks and supplies.

The escapee was caught outside the Beaumont prison after the facility was tipped off that inmates were leaving the grounds via private land at the building's rear.

The prisoners were allegedly picking up contraband and then sneaking it back into prison, where they would distribute it to their fellow inmates.

The last incident saw an escapee met by a vehicle on the private land, which dropped off a duffle bag filled with a barbecue dinner, chewing tobacco, cannabis and bottles of alcohol.

Officers made an arrest when the prisoner, who was in jail on drug charges, tried to re-enter the facility.

He has now been charged with escaping prison and the possession of marijuana.
