Authorities capture escaped WBR inmate in Baton Rouge after tip from public
WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH- Authorities have located and captured an escaped inmate in Baton Rouge Sunday afternoon.

Around 2 p.m. Sunday, Jones was captured on Hollywood St. in Baton Rouge by the U.S. Marshal’s Middle Louisiana Fugitive Task Force.
He will be booked in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison as a fugitive and then transferred to the West Baton Rouge Parish Prison where he will be booked on Simple Escape charges.
