HOUMA, LA (WVUE) - Four of seven escaped Mississippi inmates were arrested Monday morning seeking refuge in a Houma residence.
A Sunday night jail break from Covington County Jail in Collins, Mississippi brought four of seven escapees to Louisiana, according to the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office.
Since the escape, five of the seven inmates were captured. One of the inmates was captured by Mississippi authorities on Sunday night. Four others were captured Monday morning by Terrebonne Parish deputies.
Deputies say they received a tip that four inmates had sought refugee inside of a residence in west Houma, located in the 6800 block of West Main Street. Officers say that one of the escapees was related to a resident of the house.
The four inmates were quickly apprehended by authorities. A stolen Mississippi vehicle was also recovered at the residence, deputies say.
The suspects have been identified as Dustin Rogers, Richard Smith, Renardo Keyes and John Fairley.
All four suspects were jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex where they will be transported back to Mississippi authorities.
Two suspects, identified as James Chase Morgan and Jerricus Hawthorn, remain at large. Deputies say they have no connection to Houma.
Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
