Alabama: Armed Property Owner Captures Escaped Inmate

posted on July 26, 2016

Escaped inmate Jeffrey Scott checked out of the Loxley Work Release Center near Mobile, Ala., on June 23 and never returned. Authorities have been hunting him ever since.

That is, until Friday night, when the owner of a cabin in Coffee County, Ala., went to check on his property and found Scott inside the cabin. According to local media reports, the property owner ordered Scott to not leave, then held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

Dale County Chief Deputy Mason Bynum told WSFA.com that the owner of the cabin fired shots when Scott initially wouldn't comply, convincing him to stay put until law-enforcement officials were on the scene. No one was injured.
