      Inmate mistakenly released from prison recaptured

      The search is over for an inmate that was mistakenly released from prison.

      Dwaine Johnson, 19, was serving a six month sentence for throwing bodily fluids on a corrections officer at Kirkland Correctional Institution, according to Clark Newsom, spokesman for the South Carolina Department of Corrections.

      He was released last Wednesday after serving that sentence, but he is facing charges for Attempted Murder out of Georgetown County in connection to a 2011 shooting, said Newsom.

      Officials found Johnson on Tuesday night at an apartment complex in the 1800 block of Prince Street, according to Newsom.

      Earlier this week, he was believed to be in the Georgetown area.

      The U.S. Marshal's Service, SLED, S.C. Probation and Parole, S.C. Department of Corrections, Georgetown County Sheriff's Office and the Georgetown Police Department worked together to find him. They also got help from the Georgetown Solicitor's Office, Conway Police, Myrtle Beach Police and Andrews Police Departments.

      Johnson is in the custody of a South Carolina Department of Corrections' maximum security prison.
