Escaped inmates Brian Tucker and John King caught in Cooper, Tx. They were held up in a barn. They found the stolen vehicle I do believe half submerged in Cooper lake. US Marshalls took custody. Over 200 Officers was in on this. Thanks to HCSO, SSPD, SWAT, Texas Rangers, US Marshall's & surrounding counties for apprehinding them witout anyone getting hurt!!

They were in a barn that belonged to I believe 1 of the friends of King. Patty it takes money to get out of state. Plus they was plastered all over the media. They would have got caught. They let someone know where they were and a $10,000 reward for being on the 10 most wanted, plus a $5,000 reward for Hopkins county. You don't have friends when that kind of money is involved Lol

Well I take it not as easy as we may think. No money, clothes, they had to ditch the ride it was reported stolen plus their picture was everyone. We had every news crew withing 200 mile radius here. Now they were arrainged this morning and King is now on his way to TDC to start his 40 year sentence! Just glad it's finally over!!

Curious all I know is it was a friend of 1 of the escapees. They arrested 2 people from the home for Aiding and abetting. They are in Delta Co Jail. It was a barn behind the home belonging to the 2 that was arrested along with the escapees. You can read alot here or its also on youtube.
