— Authorities are working to determine if anyone helped a state prison inmate evade capture after he escaped last week from the Hot Spring County jail.

Rodney Adkins, who had been in the jail for a local court appearance, was recaptured shortly before 1 a.m. Monday after police received information he may have been driven to a wooded area off Pratt Road near Interstate 530. Adkins surrendered shortly after a team of state troopers, sheriff's deputies and corrections officers descended on the area.

Arkansas State Police spokesman Bill Sadler said in an email that police have opened an investigative file "in an attempt to determine whether there are individuals who may have aided Adkins or hindered the apprehension of the escapee."

Adkins had been on the run since Wednesday when he fled following the appearance in Hot Spring County Circuit Court on pending charges of commercial burglary, theft of property and breaking and entering. Details of the escape have not been released.

Adkins is an inmate at the Tucker Maximum Security Unit in Jefferson County. He was sentenced in Saline County in 2008 to three years in prison on robbery and criminal mischief convictions. He was sentenced in 2009 to another 45 years in prison in Pulaski County on charges of aggravated robbery, theft and second-degree battery.
