Last of 3 escapees from South Carolina jail captured

ORANGEBURG (AP) The last of three men who escaped from a county jail in South Carolina in May has been captured.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says 20-year-old Curtis Green was taken into custody by his deputies around 6:30 a.m. July 17.

Authorities say Green stole a car which broke down, and then was seen in a second car he took in a carjacking.

Ravenell said at a news conference Green led deputies on a chase and had a gun and ski mask in the car when he was arrested.

Green and two other inmates escaped May 19 after assaulting and overpowering a guard. The other inmates, 27-year-old Tyshon Johnson and 27-year-old Christopher Bolton were recaptured less than a week later.

Green was awaiting trial in a 2015 shooting death when he escaped.
