Agents with Oklahoma Department of Corrections Inspector General’s Office and U.S. Marshals have arrested Jackie Brannon Correctional Center walkaway Jeremiah Hobbs.

Hobbs was located around 6:45 Monday evening after a traffic stop at a convenience store in Broken Arrow with his girlfriend, Sara Stocum. Stocum was also arrested and will be booked at David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center for harboring a fugitive.

Hobbs, who walked away on Thursday from JBCC, will be held at Lexington Correctional Center in Lexington for a two-week quarantine due to COVID-19 precautions.

He was serving an eight-year sentence out of Tulsa County for second-degree burglary when he walked away from JBCC, a minimum-security prison located in McAlester. ODOC has submitted to prosecutors the results of its investigation for a potential felony escape charge.
