Jail Escapee Recaptured In Montgomery County

PARIS, KY - Escaped Bourbon County Jail inmate Larry Crump, 23, was recaptured a little after ten o'clock Friday night in Montgomery County, near Mt. Sterling.

According to Bourbon County Jailer Brent Deweese several law enforcement agencies including the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, Federal Marshalls, Kentucky State Police and Bourbon County authorities all converged on a residence of a friend of Crump's in the Mt. Sterling area.

He was captured with little resistance and no violence. Deweese, who was there at the time of Crump's recapture, told WKYT-TV Crump had little to say after his arrest. Crump was then transported and reincarcerated at the Bourbon County lockup.

Crump was in jail serving a 20-year sentence on multiple charges including escape and fleeing. Crump escaped by getting through a device used for mail at the jail at around 6:30 Thursday morning.

State Police didn't learn of the escape until 10:00 Thursday night.
Crump is back in the Bourbon County Jail.
He was serving a 20 year sentence on several charges including a previous escape.

    Steven: You obviously have a problem with law enforcement. If you think that you can do better I hear that the Paris Police Department is hiring...APPLY! You would not last a shift doing our job!, and no I do not work in Paris. If you think that you can do better then apply and become an officer or shut up!!!!

    Yes Bill in Lex, why would anyone want to live in Mt. Sterling when we can all live in Lexington where there is countless home invasions, stabbings, shootings, hit and runs, robberies, etc., etc. Not to mention the fact that there is so much traffic that it takes you forever to get anywhere. And as far as the number of explosions Mt. Sterling has had this year, that would be one. There was one small explosion at the Nestle plant when they had the ammonia leak. Maybe you should get your facts straight before you go off half cocked. Mt. Sterling is a great community to live in and has much less crime and congestion than Lexington.

    Not sure, but could the guy that tried to rob the bank over the phone also be from montgomery county? Seems like that where all of the intelligent criminals are coming from. Jsut a thought.

    Guess we all know Veronica is related or his gf. Maybe if he wanted to taste freedom..he should have stayed in jail the first time around without escaping and had a chance to get out sooner then he is set to. Now hes just added on a few more years. Must be an idiot not to have figured that one out. Also glad to see law enforcement "set up" escapees so they can shoot on site once found. Get real Veronica and stop listening to the crap hes feeding you full of!!!!!!!!!

    "He was not found with no weapons!!", so what you're saying Veronica is that he was found with a weapon. Why wasn't he shot on sight? (put whatever anti-law enforcement thoughts you may have here) As you wrote, I haven't met him, but I think I would like "Larry the Convict". I hear his new movie Delta Farce is pretty funny.

    He's not an idiot, maybe, but he is an incarcerated convicted felon and he's serving 20 years for "multiple charges". Don't get me started on "wanting a taste of freedom". If he valued his freedom, as well as that of other citizens he intruded on, then he wouldn't be in jail. I'm sure there are quite a few young men who rely on their parents to get them out of trouble, but every other person that lives in my neighborhood?? That might be a little overstated. Seems there are 3 types of young men: those who commit crimes and get out of it; those who commit crimes and do time; and those who never commit the crimes in the first place. If you've never seen any of the ones who have their heads on straight, then I pity you and the class of people you know. And if you think they don't exist, let me tell you about my son in the service putting his life on the line for what Larry Crump just "wanted a taste of" after being convicted of the crimes he committed against this society.

    Sounds like they need to move this joker to a more secure facility! If he has already escaped before and now this time, put him where he cannot get out! Eddyville sounds like a good place!
