Escaped inmate rearrested

TUCSON - An inmate on the run since Wednesday morning is now behind bars again.

Pima County Sheriff's Deputies received a tip Sunday describing where Robert Nelson was hiding out.

Nelson left jail Wednesday for a doctor's appointment, and didn't return.

The anonymous tip led deputies to a home in the 3900 block of West Valencia Road, near Caballo.

Deputies convinced Nelson to surrender.

He was taken into custody without incident.

Nelson's been charged with one count of escape second degree.
