“A public tip led U.S. Marshals to an address in Lincoln, where Hilburn was hiding in a storage shed located behind a resident’s home,” Horton said. “After a brief foot pursuit, Hilburn was apprehended and taken to the Talladega County Jail to await his return to the ADOC.”

Hilburn was serving a 20-year sentence on a 2013 drug possession conviction out of Mobile County, according to the ADOC.

Hilburn will be charged for the escape.
