An inmate escaped from a federal prison in Texas in an effort to bring back a stash of goods that included booze, tobacco and a large amount of home-cooked food, authorities said.

Joshua Hansen, 25, of Dallas, was arrested late Wednesday by US Marshals and deputies in Jefferson County after authorities were alerted that inmates from a federal prison in Beaumont were escaping from the rear of the facility and crossing onto private land owned by a local rancher. The inmates, according to the tip, were picking up contraband and taking it back into the facility, sheriff officials said.

Hansen was spotted sprinting from the prison and grabbing the bag. He was collared as he ran back toward the prison.

Inside the bag was a veritable trove of goodies, including three bottles of brandy, a bottle of whiskey, dozens of packages of tobacco, packaged snacks, fruit and a large amount of home-cooked food, including sausages, chicken, rice and vegetables, according to photographs released by sheriff’s officials.
