4 Tensas Parish inmates who escaped back in custody


WATERPROOF, Louisiana — Four inmates who escaped the Tensas Parish Detention Center are back in custody.

Tensas Parish Sheriff Rickey Jones tells The Natchez Democrat ( ) the inmates escaped the detention center in Waterproof early Monday by manipulating a lock.

Jones said one inmate, Charles Baughman, was captured Monday evening within three miles of the prison.

The remaining escapees — Kindall Anderson, Travis Cox and Thomas Furry — were captured at a Shreveport residence Tuesday with help from the U.S. Marshal's Service, the Louisiana State Police and local law enforcement.

Jones says the inmates had apparently stolen a truck from Concordia Parish and used it to travel to Shreveport.

The information on what the inmates were in custody for was not immediately available.
