Alvin Walling Arrest - Colleton County Sheriff's Office

Deputies have arrested a man who escaped from the Colleton County Detention Center Tuesday night.

A spokesman for the Colleton County Sheriff's Office says deputies arrested 44-year-old Alvin Lee Walling Wednesday afternoon at a home on Louise Drive in Summerville.

The sheriff's office says deputies found Walling in a room at the rear of the home, and arrested him without incident. The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office assisted in the search and arrest.

Walling was last seen working in the sally port at the Colleton County Detention Center Tuesday night.

After escaping, Walling reportedly drove away in a stolen Toyota Tacoma pickup that belonged to a detention center officer.
