Escapee from Elmore County Jail Found in South Carolina



After a week on the run, an escapee from the Elmore County Jail has been found.

Authorities say Jon Golden was captured early Wednesday afternoon at a Hampton Inn in Greenville, South Carolina.

Golden is one of five inmates who escaped from the Elmore County Jail last Wednesday.

Authorities believe Golden and the others cut the grout out around an air vent and escaped through the duct.

Golden is the last to be found and is now awaiting extradition back to Elmore County.
