VIDEO: Escaped New Jersey Inmate Captured

The escaped inmate who had been the subject of a massive manhunt in New Jersey is back in custody, reports WPVI-TV.

The station's Chopper 6 was over the scene around 11:30 a.m. Monday as 38-year-old Arthur Buckel was taken into custody.

About 20 police officers surrounded him next to a black SUV pulled over in the northbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway near Double Trouble State Park in Ocean County.

Buckel was taken into custody without incident, according to police. He was quickly placed in a van from the Department of Corrections.

Buckel escaped from the Ancora unit of Bayside State Prison in Winslow Township, Camden County, on May 3rd. He broke out of prison just weeks shy of being eligible for parole.
