2 GA inmates captured after escape

MACON, GA (AP) - Two men who escaped from the Bibb County Courthouse while officials were loading inmates into a van have been captured.

Bibb County Sheriff Jerry Modena said Tyrone Brown and Jeremy Taylor were caught Monday night within an hour of escaping custody. He said both still had their handcuffs on when they were found within a few minutes of each other.

The men were being escorted into a van to return to the county jail when authorities say they bolted. No one was injured during the escape.

Taylor was convicted of aggravated battery earlier Monday and will face an additional charge of escape after conviction.

Brown, who faces armed robbery charges, will also be slapped with an escape charge.
