GLASGOW, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man who escaped work release a month ago is back in custody.

The Kanawha County Sheriff's Office STOP team was working a drug investigation in the eastern part of the county, when they got a tip that Kevin Dale Burford was staying at a residence in Glasgow.

Deputies say they found Burford hiding inside a home in the 100-block of 3rd Avenue.

Burford escaped from work release nearly a month ago and had been staying at the home.

Deputies say he was taken into custody without incident.

At the time of his arrest, they say he was still wearing his department of corrections t-shirt with his name and department of corrections number on it.

Burford is being arraigned in the Kanawha County Magistrate Court.

We have a crew on the scene.
