Escapees Caught in Florida

by on 07/25/12

The two inmates who escaped from the Black River Falls Correctional Center on July 18th have been apprehended in Florida.  The two escapees set off a manhunt after they carjacked a vehicle in Jackson County and later stole a truck from the Northern Engraving parking lot in Sparta.  Officers responding were quick to locate the stolen truck but the two fugitives led area officers on a pursuit that ended in a rural section of Monroe County south of Tomah.  Police officers from around the area spent most of the day searching for the escapees, but they were never located.
