GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) -- Two Wyoming fugitives have been found in Oregon.

The Gillette News-Record reports 22-year-old Timothy Pott-Schmidt and 21-year-old Cory Horacek were wanted after failing to return to the Campbell County Volunteers of America correctional facility before their curfews. Both had left Monday.

Sheriff's Sgt. Janaia Muller says the men were captured in Salem, Ore., after an anonymous person called Volunteers of America on Thursday and said the two men were out of gas at a gas station.

Pott-Schmidt originally was held for felony larceny and Horacek had been held for burglary and a probation violation.
