POPLARVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Two inmates were back behind bars Wednesday after escaping a Mississippi jail over the weekend.
Maj. Marc Ogden of the Pearl River County Sheriff's Department said they received a tip late Tuesday that Rodney Smith and Jonathan Culpepper were hiding at a home in the county.
WLOX-TV reports sheriff's deputies, along with U.S. Marshals and Picayune Police officers raided the house early Wednesday.
Smith ran but was captured after a short chase.
Culpepper was found hiding inside.
Three other people face charges of aiding accessory after the fact for helping the men evade authorities.
Smith and Culpepper were among four inmates who escaped the Lenoir-Rowell Criminal Justice Center on Sunday.
The other two were captured shortly after they escaped.
All four face felony escape charges.
