Escaped Inmate Returned Behind Bars

An inmate who escaped the Coosa County Jail earlier this week is back behind bars. Thanks for joining us I’m Mike Stedham. Shane Vernon was captured without incident in DeKalb County at about 10:17 Tuesday evening.

On Sunday, police say Vernon broke into a Rockford home, tied up the homeowners, and stole their car. He left the car in a wooded area in Elmore County. Vernon also escaped in October, and once captured, he was charged with unlawful imprisonment, robbery, theft of a motor vehicle and escape.

Vernon is being held in the DeKalb County Jail.
