LIMA — One of the two inmates who had escaped from the Allen-Oakwood Correctional Institution has been recaptured in Kentucky, while the other eluded capture in Kentucky and remains at large, with local law enforcement aiding in the search.
James Lee, 47, was captured after a traffic stop led to a vehicle chase and subsequent foot chase in Henderson, Kentucky, according to a Facebook post created at 5:19 a.m. Thursday by the Henderson Police Department. Henderson is located along the Ohio River in western Kentucky near Evansville, Indiana, approximately 226 miles southwest of Cincinnati.
Officers saw a stolen vehicle believed to be occupied by Lee and fellow escaped inmate Bradley Gillespie, 50. According to the post, the officers attempted to pull the vehicle over for a traffic stop when the two attempted to flee in the vehicle, which led to a pursuit that ended with the vehicle crashing on Camaro Drive in Henderson.
