Three Missing Hoosier Inmates Picked Up In Cornhusker Country

Last updated on Friday, March 27, 2009

(UNDATED) - Three inmates who escaped from an Indiana prison last week have been captured in Nebraska. Nebraska authorities say they used stop sticks to disable their car, but the men were still able to drive into a town.

Two of the men were immediately captured, but the third ran and was caught after a short foot pursuit.

The three escaped from the Branchville Correctional Facility in Perry County after overpowering a guard then cutting through a fence last Friday.

They've been identified as 49-year-old Christopher Marshall, 59-year-old Jerry Sargent and 31-year-old Bobby Cockerell.
