AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio learned this morning that law enforcement officials have captured Johnny Mac Brown, one of the two inmates who escaped last month from Hays Prison in Pennville.
The details of the capture are not known at this time; however, the GBI has alerted local law enforcement in Chattooga County that Brown was captured in Lavonia this morning.
On November 1st the United States Marshalls Service had added the escaped inmate to their "15 Most Wanted List" and has posted a $25,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of Brown.
No word on the other inmate that had escaped from Hays Prison with Brown, Michael Tweedle. In fact the Georgia Department of Corrections and law enforcement agencies across the state have had little to say about the possible whereabouts of Tweedle.
Stay tuned to AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio for more details as they become available.
