An inmate at the Jackson County Jail is back in custody after escaping Wednesday morning.
William Holt escaped through an open gate when a delivery was being made to the jail about 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to Rocky Harnen of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff's office contacted Scottsboro Police to establish a perimeter in the area. They also called in the Limestone County Prison K-9 tracking team and requested a helicopter from ALEA.
The K-9 team tracked Holt several miles in the woods and out to Willow Street by the Jackson County BOE office in Scottsboro.
He was caught in that area about 11:30 a.m.
Harnen said an escape charge will be added to Holt’s other charges.
