Tennessee Escapees Are Caught In Corbin

Two Tennessee escapees are arrested in Corbin.

Investigators say Derek Beeler and James Bright escaped from the Union County Jail in Maynardville, Tennessee early Wednesday morning.

The escapees got out by sliding through the jail's ventilation system.

Officers in Corbin received a complaint Wednesday afternoon of people trying to steal items from a hardware store.

Officers traced the vehicle involved and found the two men at a local hotel.
