Escaped Inmate Back Behind Bars

An inmate who escaped from the Bell County Forestry Camp is back behind bars.

Sean Southerland was caught just after midnight thanks to a new canine unit at the minimum security prison. Prison bloodhounds located the escapee three miles from the prison.

Southerland, who was serving a six year sentence out of Hardin County, now faces escape charges and is being held in the Bell County Jail.
