And it's the second prison escape from an Oregon minimum-security facility in less than a week.

He was caught later that day at a fast-food restaurant off I-5, and now faces added charges.
A state corrections spokeswoman said both incidents will be thoroughly reviewed by the agency and OSP, and security protocols will be scrutinized.
