Escaped inmate found in southern Indiana

An inmate who escaped from a Kentucky jail last month by climbing through a hole in a jail window has been found in southern Indiana.

 

Madison police say Anthony Martinez, 30, was caught near Hanover on Tuesday. When he was found, Martinez tried to run, but was shot with a stun gun and captured near a church.

 

Investigators from Indiana almost caught him on Oct. 8 in Scott County, but he ran away into some trees, and they lost him.

 

Martinez, who was arrested in February for robbery charges, escaped Sept. 29 from Louisville Metro Corrections after climbing through a hole in the fourth-floor window and using a hose to lower himself to the ground.

 

He's now in the custody of the U.S. Marshals.
