The New Jersey Department of Corrections announced the arrest of 73-year-old Enrique Silva on Monday. He was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in Orlando last week.

Silva walked off a work detail at the since-closed Riverfront State Prison in Camden in 1995. He was serving the sixth year of an eight- to 20-year sentence for dealing drugs.
