GODFREY — Two escaped prisoners from Tennessee were back in police custody Wednesday after a raid on a home in Godfrey.
According to a Facebook post by the Gibson County, Tenn., Sheriff’s Office, and media reports, officers from the U.S. Marshals Service and Madison County Sheriff’s Department arrested Jason Clapper and Joseph Isbell early Wednesday morning at a home in the 4700 block of Iroquois Trail in Godfrey.
The pair escaped Nov. 11 after scaling a fence between guard checks during an outdoor recreation period.
The men are in custody in Madison County, awaiting extradition to Tennessee.
Other than the two fugitives, the house in Godfrey reportedly was vacant at the time of the arrests.
