Police Recapture Two Escaped Inmates in Southern Illinois

Two inmates who escaped from a work camp in Southern Illinois late Sunday afternoon have been apprehended after about sixteen hours on the run.

25-year-old Jerrette Reed and 20-year-old Kevin Rivera were captured just before 9AM Monday in a field about a mile away from the Dixon Springs Impact Incarceration Program facility in Pope County.

A statement from the Illinois Department of Corrections says Reed and Rivera were arrested without incident and will be transferred to a maximum security facility. An investigation into the escape is underway.
