December 28, 2018

LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in southwestern Ohio say a tip about a suspicious person led to the capture of one of the two inmates who escaped from the Community Correctional Center in Warren County.

The men were reported missing early Friday from the facility in Lebanon, about halfway between Cincinnati and Dayton. Both were serving time on drug charges.

Authorities say 23-year-old Logan Michael Lee Fithen was apprehended Friday afternoon in the nearby city of Monroe. Officials were still seeking 34-year-old James Warren Adams III.

Sgt. Ryan Saylor of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office told WCPO-TV it’s not clear how the men escaped. Saylor says they were held in different parts of the facility but apparently left at the same time.

Authorities say the men will face additional charges for escape.
