He was considered armed and extremely risky, authorities said.

It was the second time Vernon, 27, has escaped custody in less than a month, officials said.

The Coosa County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that an escaped inmate is back in custody.

An "armed and extremely dangerous" escaped inmate continues to elude authorities days after he broke free from the Coosa County Jail in Alabama.

The Elmore County District Attorney's office says Vernon faces three counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of first-degree burglary and one count of first-degree kidnapping.

Also on Monday, Vernon allegedly broke into a man's home, stole his vehicle, kidnapped him and drove to Douglasville. Franklin says the family got up and went into the field, but when they returned, they found him in their home. The victim was able to safely make it to a police station.

Vernon could be now in the metro Atlanta area, deputies told ABC Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV.

Coosa County Sheriff Terry Wilson said while on the run, Vernon was considered armed and extremely unsafe.

The sheriff's office also is investigating the actions of a jail officer that apparently led to Vernon's escape. "At this time, Vernon is wanted for multiple offenses and should be considered armed and extremely risky, his whereabouts are unknown", the U.S. Marshals Service told ABC News in a statement.

This is Vernon's second escape from the Coosa County since late October.

The U.S. Marshals Service is leading the search effort with the aid of state and local law enforcement agencies.
