TOLEDO (WTOL) - A teen who escaped from the Juvenile Justice Center more than a month ago is back behind bars.

Willis Johnson was caught by the Toledo Police Gang Task Force in a house at 816 Vance St.  Thursday around 9:15 p.m.

Police say Johnson and Dontae Moore escaped from the center on Oct. 3 by using a table to smash out a window on the second story. Moore was found about two days later.

Johnson has been booked back into the center for escape and numerous other warrants.

The county is taking steps to make windows in the center less shatterproof.
