Authorities in Orange County have found the man convicted on two counts of murder on Friday after he escaped from a work release facility earlier this week.

Richard Weber, 32, was arrested at about 4 p.m. in the 3300 block of Curry Ford Rd.  He was arrested without incident, charged on the outstanding warrant of escape, and taken the Orange County Jail, according to police.

Weber served a six-year sentence for two counts of third-degree murder in state prison, but was serving time at the work release facility on two charges for possession of marijuana over 20 grams and possession of a controlled substance.

Weber didn't return to the Bridges of Orlando, a private company located on Mercy Drive just south of West Princeton Street, on Monday night, according to the Florida Department of Corrections.
