LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Nevada Department of Corrections said an inmate who walked away from a conservation camp located 30 miles north of Las Vegas was recaptured in a Summerlin area apartment Saturday. 

According to NDOC, Jeffrey Pimental was reported missing from Three Lakes Valley Conservation Camp at about 6 p.m. on Jan. 20. The department said it was believed he walked away from the camp and was picked up by a driver in a vehicle nearby. 

Pimental was described as a minimal security male inmate. NDOC said he arrived from Clark County on April 6, 2017, and was serving 29 to 60 months for battery with a deadly weapon. 

On Saturday, investigators called Pimental out of the apartment and he surrendered without incident. He was taken to High Desert State Prison where he'll stay, facing further charges.
