NASHVILLE, NC – Four of the five inmates who fled the Nash County Detention Center in North Carolina were arrested on Tuesday morning.
Sheriff Keith Stone said the inmates forced through a whole in a fence in training room at. 15.30 Monday and escaped, according to WRAL TV. The inmates were monitored by a camera in the yard, and Stone said it was possible that they knew they were in a camera's blind spot.
The inmates were identified as David Marshal Viverette, 28, David Ruffin Jr., 30, Keonte Daemoan Murphy, 23, Raheem D-Carlos Horne, 26, and Laquaris Rashad Battle, 23, who remained big Tuesday morning.
Viverette and Horne made it to the Hal Orr's Inn in the Rocky Mount, 24 km away from the Nashville prison. One tip led the authorities to the motel, Stone said. Both men were taken into custody on Monday night. It was not immediately known how Ruffin and Murphy were arrested.
Men's fees range from possession of a stolen vehicle to attacks by tightening and drug possession.
Stone said the FBI and other area law enforcement departments have assisted in Search. He urged residents to lock their homes and cars while the hunt continues.
