GALLIA COUNTY, Ohio — All four inmates who escaped from the Gallia County Jail in southern Ohio early Sunday morning have been captured.

The Cary, North Carolina Police Department confirmed Monday morning they captured Brynn K. Martin, Christopher M. Clemente, and Troy McDaniel, Junior.

The Gallia County Sheriff's Office confirmed Monday afternoon that Lawrence Lee, III was caught in Durham, North Carolina.

Shortly before 2 a.m. Monday, the North Carolina Highway Patrol alerted Cary Police that four fugitives from Ohio were believed to be in the area of Red Roof Inn on Walnut Street. Upon arrival, Martin, Clemente, and McDaniel were captured without incident. Several agencies searched for another two hours but did not locate Lee.

The three apprehended were taken to Wake County Public Safety Center, where they are currently awaiting extradition to Ohio.

The men escaped from the Gallia County Jail around 12:14 a.m. Sunday. The four inmates overpowered two female corrections officers with a homemade weapon. They were then able to force open a secured door and escape.

Deputies say at least one person on the outside helped the inmates escape.
