A man who authorities said escaped from a work release program in St. Tammany Parish Nov. 9 was caught Friday north of DeRidder.
Martin A. White, 31, of New Llano, was apprehended after he was sighted in DeRidder, said Chief Deputy Joe Toler of the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office.
White crashed while being pursued on Golden Lantern Road, Toler said.
White is serving eight years with the Department of Corrections on a burglary charge. He was working in Covington when authorities said he failed to return from work.
White was processed into the Beauregard Parish Jail and is being held without bond.
