Two Lincoln County escapees captured

The Associated Press - June 14, 2017 9:08 am

DALE, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say they’ve captured two of the four inmates who escaped from the Lincoln County jail earlier this week.

The Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office says inmates Jeremy Tyson Irvin and Trey Glenn Goodnight were caught early Wednesday near Dale, which is about 25 miles south of the jail from which they escaped early Monday.

Authorities say Irvin and Goodnight surrendered peacefully at about 2 a.m. Wednesday. Two other inmates, Brian Moody and Sonny Baker, remain missing. Court records show that Irvin is charged with first-degree murder and the others are accused of property crimes.

Authorities say the four inmates escaped by crawling through the jail’s ventilation system.
