RAYMOND, Miss. — Authorities say one of the inmates at large after an escape at a Mississippi jail has been captured, leaving two at large.
Officials say four prisoners fled about 12:45 a.m. Monday from the jail in the small town of Raymond. They were discovered missing during bed check. Sheriff’s department spokesman Othor Cain says 19-year-old Jermaine Wilson was found and arrested 18 hours later in Jackson, about 10 miles away.
Cain also says that on Tuesday, 18-year-old Kevin Holmes was arrested without incident in Jackson. Other details of the arrests weren’t immediately available.
Deputies and U.S. marshals were chasing leads Tuesday on the remaining two fugitives: 25-year-old Montreal Damon Anderson and 23-year-old John Rollins.
Sheriff Tyrone Lewis said investigators were putting together details of the escape, describing it as “prearranged and preplanned” with help from inside and outside the jail.
