LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- UPDATE 12:05 PM

Hopkins County Sheriff's Office say they found Allison and Nance at home in Earlington this morning around 8:30.

Both men were arrested and taken to the Hopkins County Detention Center.


Police are searching for two inmates who escaped from a minimum security prison in Lexington.
