A 43-year-old man who escaped from a federal prison a year ago where he was serving a five-year term for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and distribution of cocaine was captured at a Davis Islands apartment complex Wednesday, authorities said. Alejandro Ernesto Lima walked away from Eglin prison camp in the Florida Panhandle.

Federal marshals acting on information from a confidential informant set up surveillance on the Jen Dora Apartments at 46 Davis Boulevard and arrested Lima at 12:30 p.m. when he drove into the parking lot, said Marshal James A. Tassone.
