A fugitive is back in custody on Friday after nine years on the run.

Charles Pierce walked off a work release site in 2005 and stole a city truck to get away.

Pierce was found last month in Orange County, Florida.

When asked if anyone helped him escape, Pierce stated that he acted alone.

The 63-year-old now faces theft and escape charges.
