KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A man wanted for escape in Indianapolis, Indiana is caught in Knox County.

Records from the Indiana Department of Corrections show 23-year-old Logan Dailey escaped custody in Indiana. He was serving time on drug possession charges. He also has served time for robbery.

Knox County Sheriff's Deputies say he tried to escape again when they arrested him.

Dailey talked to WYMT's Angela Sparkman in jail.

He admitted he escaped custody in Indiana earlier this year.

"I went to work release and I violated that and I was on the run," Dailey said.

He says he then met his girlfriend Rebecca Jones in Indianapolis and they came to her home in Knox County, Kentucky.

Sheriff's Deputies say while looking into a suspicious car on Sunday in Flat Lick, they found the couple. Deputy Claude Hudson says while questioning them, they both gave fake names, but the deputy knew the woman was Rebecca Jones. He says Dailey claimed to be her ex-husband Brian Jones who has an arrest warrant, so Deputy Hudson tried to arrest him.

"He literally pushed Rebecca Jones into me to try to flee. I took foot pursuit, we had a short fight, and took him into custody," said Deputy Hudson.

"I was just trying to not get in trouble. I wanted to be free still pretty much," said Dailey in the jailhouse interview.

When they got to the jail, corrections officers realized he was not Brian Jones because he did not look like the previous pictures of Brian Jones on file. From fingerprinting, they realized he was Indiana fugitive Logan Dailey.

Dailey now has a list of charges in Kentucky including fleeing and evading, wanton endangerment of police, theft of identity, and hindering prosecution.

Dailey says he now regrets it all.

"Everything, take it all back, be a man and stay out of trouble and do what I'm supposed to," said Dailey.

Officials say he will face the charges in Knox County before going back to Indiana.

Deputy Hudson says Rebecca Jones ran away while he was chasing Dailey and she has not been found since then. He says she is wanted for theft of identity and other pending charges from Sunday.

Deputies are looking for Jones to arrest her. Deputy Hudson says she called him this week.

"She called from Indianapolis, Indiana. She's back in that area, wanting to turn herself in for less charges," Dep. Hudson said.

Officials say they will not reduce her charges so she refuses to surrender.

Deputies say they have alerted police in Indiana who are also looking for her there.
