TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The head of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement says authorities have captured the two prisoners who were released by phony documents.
Commissioner Gerald Bailey said Saturday night that Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker were taken into custody together at a motel in Panama City Beach. Authorities say they were taken into custody about 6:40 p.m. at the Coconut Grove Motor Inn without incident.
The men were mistakenly released within the last month.
Bailey did not immediately release any other details.
