OUSHATTA — An Avoyelles Parish prisoner who escaped from a Bunkie facility on Jan. 12 has been recaptured in Red River Parish.

Sheriff Doug Anderson said Richard Bamburg, 45, escaped from the Avoyelles Sheriff’s Office Detention Center by climbing over a fence and through razor wire.

Anderson said Bamburg was captured Friday by the U.S. Marshall Service Fugitive Task Force and Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office.

He is being held in the Red River Parish Jail and will be transferred back to Avoyelles to face charges of simple escape.
