A state Department of Corrections trusty who walked away from his work station in St. Tammany Parish was captured Wednesday morning in Denham Springs, according to a release from the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Frederick Haven, 58, was located following an intensive search for the past several days, spokesman George M. Bonnett Jr. said in the release.

Haven was in jail following a May theft conviction in Tangipahoa Parish, Bonnett said.

Haven will be transported back to St. Tammany Parish and booked with simple escape, Bonnett said.
