Jail Escapee Found At Lexington Church

The search for an inmate who walked away from the Blackburn Correctional Complex Monday morning ended in a Lexington neighborhood.

Police say Scott Stephenson, 28, turned up missing at 4:20 a.m. during a bed check.

Shortly after 8:30 a.m., Stephenson surrendered to police near the Calvary Free Methodist Church on Clays Mill Road.

It's unclear what brought police to the church in the first place.

Stephenson was serving time for robbery, receiving stolen property, probation violation and being a persistent felon.
