by Minden Press-Herald

An escapee from a Union Parish work release crew, who also faces outstanding warrants in Webster Parish, was apprehended Sunday morning after being recognized by a Webster deputy on patrol.

“Deputy Michael Chanler saw the suspect standing near the roadway on Henrietta White Blvd. and approached him,” Parker said. “Deputy Chanler served as a correctional officer when the suspect was incarcerated and recognized him from his time there.”

According to Sheriff Jason Parker, 40-year-old Cory Kenterell Hudson of Sarepta was arrested after a brief foot chase shortly before 10 AM. He is currently being held in Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center awaiting extradition.

In addition to the fugitive charge, Hudson is facing Webster warrants for unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling and battery of a dating partner. Bonds on those warrants total $11,500.
