John “Cal” Stutts, who was sought for questioning in the escape, also was caught Monday, officials said in another Facebook post.

Authorities had been searching for the inmates since they climbed down a drainpipe and took off running from the jail, sheriff’s Sgt. Stewart Smith said. Investigators searched Thursday and offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the capture of each man.

Deputies caught up with Bell on Hamilton Road with the assistance of LaGrange police about 9:45 a.m. Friday.

That same day, authorities said they were looking for Stutts on a charge of crossing a guard line with contraband.

Details about the capture of Cuddington and Stutts have not been released.
