SHELBY COUNTY, TN (AP) Authorities have captured a Tennessee jail inmate who escaped a worksite in a truck.
Officials say Shelby County jail inmate Jack Kilpatrick rode away from a work-release site in Memphis in a white 2005 GM Sierra truck with the words “container maintenance” written on both sides of the vehicle on Monday morning.
A sheriff’s office spokesman said Kilpatrick was found Monday afternoon in St. Clair County in north Alabama.
He was arrested after a brief vehicle pursuit.
The 39-year-old Kilpatrick is serving a sentence of just under a year for methamphetamine possession.
He began serving the sentence in October.
