Escaped Georgia inmates captured in Tennessee

16 June, 2017, 06:15 | Author: Roberto Lindsey

Police believe they are now in a white pickup truck and could be anywhere in the country.

In Georgia, Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills told reporters no one was wounded and the inmates gave up after about 15 minutes in the trees beside Interstate 24. "Our focus right now is to apprehend these two unsafe criminals".

On Thursday, Special Agent David LeValley, head of the FBI's Atlanta office, announced the start of a billboard campaign urging the public to help find the fugitives, and acknowledged that the hunt is no longer limited to Georgia, but now national.

Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose are the inmates accused of shooting and killing two Georgia correctional officers in Putnam County. He said the two then carjacked a driver who pulled up behind the bus and fled in his Honda Civic down state Highway 16 in Putnam County, southeast of Atlanta.

Sills said law enforcement has gotten more than 100 tips, from places as far as Virginia and Texas.

"Yes, they have been interviewed", Sills said.

Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Gregory Dozier said, "Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of two of our officers, who are our family". The inmates got into a wreck, left the vehicle and then led police on a foot chase before both men were taken into custody in the community of Christiana, she said. Sills said Dubose also has "ghost" tattooed on his right forefinger and "face" on his right pinky finger — signs of membership in the Ghost Face Gangsters. They took his auto [a Honda Civic] and fled from the scene. The other prisoners on the bus, Sills said, "did not visibly participate" in the escape.

Late Tuesday night, about 12 hours after the home burglary, the pair stole a Ford pickup truck from a rock quarry about 9 miles (14.5 kilometers) from the burglarized home.

According to CNN, Sills said the truck was ditched in Moore County in Tennessee and the two apparently stole a vehicle, which they drove to a house in Bedford County. "They would do a crime and it would escalate".

The inmates have been cellmates a couple of times in Georgia's prisons, had known each other for "quite a while" and may have planned the escape together, Department of Corrections Assistant Commissioner Ricky Myrick said.

Monica had worked for the facility for almost eight years after being hired in October of 2009.

Dubose is serving a 20-year sentence for armed robbery, aggravated assault and theft from a 2014 case. Both were convicted of armed robbery and other violent crimes, and they've been cellmates a few times in Georgia's prisons.

Both escapees committed armed robbery and other crimes.

"It has become a nationwide search for these two individuals", he said.
