Tennessee "hero" says Georgia fugitives surrendered to him


"So I'm totally grateful to everyone involved".

The fugitives entered the home of an elderly couple, tied them up and stole their vehicle, leading police on a auto chase, Emmett said. The inmates got into a wreck, left the vehicle and then led police on a foot chase before both men were taken into custody in the community of Christiana, she said. At left is Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn, and at right is Rutherford County Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh.

Shortly after, Rowe and Dubose crashed the auto and ran away. "Just get the police out here as quick as you can".

The man and woman "are lucky they're alive", Bedford County Sheriff Austin Swing said.

The two are being held in the Rutherford County jail.

Ricky Myrick, assistant commissioner of the Georgia Department of Corrections, told reporters on Wednesday that the inmates were most recently cellmates at Baldwin State Prison and had been cellmates at other Georgia prisons.

Once the man confirms the police are on their way again, he says he will be waiting for them outside his home.

A photo of the two suspects after their capture was quickly shared by law enforcement and news agencies across the country.

"We will do everything in our power to support their loved ones, and we will not forget their sacrifice and service", Deal said.

The two had been on the run since Tuesday after killing two state corrections officers and escaping from a prisoner bus in Georgia.

He also promised that the new " Better Together Update " will bring a more consistent and unified version of " Minecraft ". Finally, there's a new graphics pack for 4K viewing - better lighting, shadows, and water effects, the company said.

The two inmates overpowered and disarmed the guards about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday as 33 inmates were being driven between prisons, authorities have said.

Now they'll be transported back to Putnam County, and the families of Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue can rest a little easier knowing that the men suspected behind their deaths are behind bars before their funerals.

Late Tuesday night, about 12 hours after the home burglary, the pair stole a Ford pickup truck from a rock quarry about 9 miles (14.5 kilometers) from the burglarized home. The FBI announced a tip line and said pictures of the men and information about a $130,000 reward would appear in multiple states. The Tennessee and Georgia bureaus of investigation weren't immediately sure who would collect the reward.

Authorities warned that the men, who had escaped with the guards' 9 mm pistols, were considered very unsafe.

Having lost their weapons in the crash, Dubose and Rowe surrendered, authorities said.

Investigators are still looking into how the escaped inmates got out of the secured area of the bus.

He says they must have mistaken his vehicle for a police cruiser, saying they look similar.

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The man credited by law enforcement with holding two Georgia prison escapees at gunpoint until police arrived rejected the "hero" label on Friday, and said credit should go to forces well beyond his control.

Rowe was serving a sentence of up to life in prison for armed robbery and aggravated assault in a 2001 case.
