A woman who escaped from a Hancock County jail on Friday night has been captured.
27-year-old Kasie Mitchell was taken back into custody around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Lawrence County — about 100 miles away from where she escaped.
“I want to commend Captain Garrett Bradford, Deputy Chris Wallace, Walthall County Investigator Cole Andrews, and Hancock County Investigators Mike Burkett and Matt Sekinger on a job well done!” Lawrence County Sheriff Ryan Everett said.
Mitchell, who was being held on a larceny charge in Slidell, La., had already appeared in front of a justice court on misdemeanor charges she was facing. The Tylertown native reportedly scaled the nearly 18 foot fence with barbed wire at the jail during exercise time.
