Reward grows as search for escaped inmates continues

Search for escaped inmates expanding as it enters 3rd day

"Right now, the intent of the sheriffs [is] to let us have them because their charges here are more serious".

Making a direct appeal to the two fugitives, the sheriff said: "You need to surrender".

Tarver said she last talked to Dubose when he visited her church in 2013.

Rowe and Dubose are being held in the Rutherford County jail, the AP reports.

Channel 2 Action News learned Thursday evening the men ditched that truck Moore County, Tennessee Thursday. They made their way to another home, but police say this time the homeowner held them at gunpoint with help from a neighbor after they tried to steal the homeowner's auto.

"I saw two brutally murdered corrections officers, that's what I saw", said Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills recalling what he saw on the bus. Officers said the inmates shot at police during the chase, but thankfully, no one was hurt.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Georgia Governor Nathan Deal had tweeted earlier that the two men were in custody.

Det. Sgt. Dan Goodwin of the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office said at around 6 p.m., officers spotted a vehicle wanted in a carjacking in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Law enforcement then chased the two at speeds around 100 miles per hour on Interstate 24, according to Det.

"All of a sudden, I look up from my phone and I see a state trooper".


"I think it's a testament to the training, I think it's a testament to our individuals and I think it's a testament to our men and women at the sheriff's office, that they handled themselves very well in a very tight, tough situation".

"We always work together, particularly at times like this", Goodwin said.

"We got a text from the neighbors that they were shutting down all the roads in and out and everyone in the neighborhood is armed down here and this is a dead end road down here so we locked up all the houses locked the cars", said neighbor Keith Marzalen. Dubose and Rowe had left their weapons at the crash site, authorities said. The couple who live there spent the next three hours tied up while the fugitives ate their beef stew and pilfered their valuables.

She says both men were taken into custody in Christiana, Tennessee. No one was injured in the incident. The pair then carjacked a driver who pulled up behind the bus, and fled in his Honda Civic down state Highway 16 in Putnam County, southeast of Atlanta. Sometime that night, a Ford F-250 was stolen in Morgan County.

He wasn't sure whether they were cellmates at Baldwin State Prison immediately prior to the escape. In the process, they killed two correctional officers, sparking the manhunt. "We can not replace them".

"Rest assured, justice will be served".

The FBI is rolling out what it calls "a significant media effort" including "a nationwide billboard campaign" to appeal for help from the public in tracking down two inmates sought in the killings of their guards on a Georgia prison bus. The pain endured by the families and loved ones of Sergeant Christopher Monica and Sergeant Curtis Billue endures, however.
