ALLENDALE COUNTY, SC (WFXG) -

Allendale County deputies have captured an inmate who walked away from the county detention center Wednesday afternoon. 

Albert Badger, 18, was washing a prison vehicle around 1 p.m. when he walked off, said Lt. Steven Robinson with the Allendale County Sheriff's Office. 

Allendale County schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution, Robinson said. Deputies believe Badger was running through the woods near the detention center and Allendale-Fairfax High School. 

The Hampton County Sheriff's Office bloodhound tracking team was called in to search for Badger but didn't find him. Deputies caught Badger around 5:30 p.m. behind a house on Furman-Googe Road west of Fairfax. 

School resource officers escorted students and buses Tuesday afternoon until all students were out safely. 

Badger was in the detention center on an assault charge. 

Anyone with information about Badger can call the Allendale County Sheriff's Office at 803-584-8151.
