Escaped Prisoner Recaptured In Russell County

An escapee from the Muscogee County Prison is now back behind bars.

Two weeks ago Brandon Turner walked away from a work detail at the Government Center.  Tuesday night he was caught in Russell County.

Authorities say he was caught after they say he raced by a deputy's squad car and eventually crashed.

Before his escape Turner was in prison for theft and shoplifting.
