Prison escapee doesn't get too far

METTER, GA (WTOC) - Convicted felon Joseph Woods escaped from his Candler County jail cell. The sheriff's office put the prison on lock down and got US Marshalls and K-9s on the case.

After a short search, they found Woods hiding in a shed still inside the jail. Police think he was waiting to climb a fence in the dark.

Woods is being held with aggravated assault.
