A MAN who absconded from an open prison in Derbyshire has now been arrested.
Andrew Hudson, 38, absconded from HMP Sudbury on Monday, June 16.
He was convicted for burglary at a dwelling on April 16, 2007 at Worcester Crown Court and was serving a five year sentence concurrently to an indeterminate sentence for public protection for robbery on June 18, 2006. Hudson (pictured) was found and arrested in Kidderminster yesterday by West Mercia Police.
HMP Sudbury is a category D open prison and prisoners are allowed to leave during the day to complete unpaid community orders and work assignments. The prison has received much criticism lately for the number of inmates on the run now standing at 28 prisoners. Derbyshire Police have said they are doing everything possible to locate the missing prisoners and have a dedicated team to find absconders.
