Grady is currently in police custody but will be returned to the custody of the prison service.
Gwent Police launched an investigation after being notified that he had absconded.
A force spokesman said: “An operational plan was activated and officers worked with Avon and Somerset Police to locate him.”
Officers also arrested a 22-year-old man and a 47-year-old woman, both from the Bristol area, on suspicion of assisting an offender.
Leanne Holt, 34, from Bristol, has already appeared at Caerphilly Magistrates Court accused of assisting an offender.
She will next appear for sentencing at Cardiff Crown Court on Friday, February 15.
A 37-year-old man, who was also originally arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender, has been released without charge.
