OBERLIN — A 23-year-old man is back in jail after a brief escape from the Allen Parish jail on Tuesday, authorities said.

Johnathan Kyle Courville, 23, fled from deputies while awaiting transfer to Jefferson Davis Parish on burglary and theft charges, officials said.

He was reportedly recaptured a few hours later and only a short distance from the parish jail.

Courville was still wearing his handcuffs when he fled from police, authorities said.
