The pre-release prisoner who's been on the run since Monday morning has been captured.

Police found Shane Gauci at a home in Gawler West just after midnight and made the arrest.

The 41 year old was serving a five year sentence for property and theft offences when he failed to return to a prison van. 

It's believed he'd asked to use the toilet at the On The Run at Newton and walked off from there.

It's also now known Gauci has a 22 year long criminal record including attacking a widow at a Salisbury ATM last year while on parole.

He'd been on heroin at the time of the assault and was jailed over the incident.


Correctional Services has promised to review the pre-release work program he'd been involved in.
