Le Flore County deputies captured an inmate over the weekend who escaped from a minimum security prison in eastern Oklahoma.

Authorities captured Curtis Edward Gibson on Sunday in the unincorporated Summerfield area. Fort Smith, Ark., television station KHBS ( ) reports that authorities found Gibson looking for food in a trash bin.

Deputies announced last week that Gibson was discovered missing during a headcount July 1 at the Jim Hamilton Correctional Center.

   - Rape in the first degree

   - Bail jumping

Gibson is now waiting to be transferred back to Oklahoma.
