Louisville escapee found in Indiana
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) - Authorities say an inmate who escaped from a Kentucky jail last month by climbing through a hole in a jail window has been captured in southern Indiana.
Madison police say 30-year-old Anthony Martinez was captured in a wooded area near Hanover.
Martinez, who was arrested in February on robbery charges involving multiple banks, escaped Sept. 29 from the Louisville Metro Corrections after apparently climbing through a hole in a fourth-floor window and then using a hose draped along the building to lower himself to the ground.
He’s now in the custody of the U.S. Marshals.
