Wanted GA inmates CAPTURED after chase in TN

Search for escaped inmates expanding as it enters 3rd day

Two escaped inmates accused of slaying two Georgia prison guards were captured in Tennessee Thursday following a three-day manhunt. The suspects were held at gunpoint after a homeowner say them trying to steal his auto. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills called the fugitive inmates "dangerous beyond description". Both are being sought by law enforcement.

Sills agreed with reporters that Dubose will have trouble hiding his prominent tattoos, which include crowns above his eyebrows, a star below his right ear and graffiti-style letters all across his neck.

The pair then traveled in a stolen vehicle to Tennessee and tried to to steal another vehicle. The armed men told the couple they were the Georgia convicts and threatened to kill them if they resisted.

LeValley stressed that the reward is for information leading to an arrest, saying: "We do not offer rewards for someone to be brought in dead or alive".

But the agency says authorities have not decided how to disperse the reward, which comes from multiple law enforcement agencies. "We will do everything in our power to support their loved ones, and we will not forget their sacrifice and service", he added.

At about 5:30 p.m. CT, Swing said Dubose and Rowe chose to leave and stole the couple's Jeep Cherokee.

Donnie Rowe, left, and Ricky Dubose are pictured in photos initially released by the Department of Corrections after their escape. "Before I could get anywhere upon them, there were 25 officers out here", said Littrell.

Donnie Rowe, 43, and Ricky DuBose, 24, both waived their right to extradition, meaning they are agreeing to go back to Georgia without a hearing in Tennessee.

"True bravery is what's caused us to stand before you tonight to talk about a successful capture instead of a tragic incident", he said.

They then attempted to steal a second vehicle from a home, but were held at gunpoint by this homeowner. Finally, the Cherokee crashed, and the fugitive men left the vehicle and a foot chase commenced.

Miller said the 10-mile chase Thursday on I-24 south of Nashville was hundreds of miles from where they escaped.

"They wrestled with the man and took control of him", Swing told WSMV. Then they stole a pickup truck from a nearby industrial site sometime between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday, Sills said.

Officers arrested Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose in Christina, Tennessee, that effectively ended a nationwide manhunt for the pair after they escaped Tuesday.

Protocol is to have two armed corrections officers on the bus, but the officers don't wear bullet-proof vests during transfers, Dozier said.

Gov. Deal issued a statement late Thursday praising those involved in capturing the men and wrote that the public is safe. Gwyn said Thursday he wasn't sure who would be collecting the money.

He says: "We were all tied up, we just got loose".

Donnie Russell Rowe, an escaped Georgia prisoner, was apprehended in Tennessee on June 15, 2017.
