BATON ROUGE - Authorities said they caught up to an escaped work release inmate from East Feliciana Parish at a Baton Rouge hotel.

Investigators arrested Frankie New, 39, last night at the Alamo Hotel around 10:30 p.m. They also arrested his girlfriend, Sheryl Millsaps, who was at the hotel with him.

Sheriff's deputies said New walked off his job Monday at Elams Auto Service and Body Shop in Jackson. He was serving time for a burglary charge.

It's the second time in a week a work release inmate escaped from custody in East Feliciana Parish. The Louisiana Department of Corrections is planning to investigate the escapes.
