jail escapees

Michael Leonard Willis, 30, and 21-year-old Finis Blanton, were apprehended by the Westmoreland, Tennessee Police Department this morning. Police say the men climbed a chain-linked fence in the recreation area of the Warren County Jail last night, and took off on foot.

The two were pulled over in Westmoreland at around eight this morning for a routine stop. That's when police discovered they were in a stolen vehicle from Auburn. After answering to charges in Tennessee, the two will be extradited back to Kentucky.
