DIXON SPRINGS, Ill. (AP) - Two escaped inmates from a southern Illinois prison have been captured. Jerrette Reed, 25, and Kevin Rivera, 20, were found in a field about a mile away. They were taken into custody without incident at around 9am. They will be transferred to a maximum security facility.
State prison officials say two inmates incarcerated on drug charges escaped the Dixon Springs Impact Incarceration Program in southern Illinois at around 5:50pm Sunday.
Reed is serving a three-year sentence on meth-related charges out of Randolph County. Rivera is serving a five-year sentence for the manufacture and delivery of cocaine out of Cook County.
The facility is located near the Kentucky border in Pope County.
