HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) -- Authorities say an inmate who escaped from a central Arkansas jail last month has been recaptured in the Florida Panhandle.
Little Rock television station KTHV reports that Derrick Estell was booked into the Santa Rosa County jail on Friday morning.
Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Deputy Rich Aloy told the television station that Garland County authorities contacted them and gave them information on where Estell and his girlfriend might be.
Aloy said Estell and his girlfriend were arrested without incident in an abandoned house.
Authorities say the two of them had been on the run since Estell escaped from Garland County Detention Center on July 28 by diving out of a window.
