4 inmates who escaped from Missouri jail arrested in Ohio

One inmate was quickly taken into custody in Missouri shortly after the escape.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — All five inmates who escaped from a Missouri jail have now been arrested. Four of the inmates are being held in Butler County, Ohio, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Aaron Wade Sebastian, 30, Kelly McSean, 52, Lujuan Tucker, 37 and Dakota Pace, 26, originally escaped from the St. Francois County Detention Center in Farmington, Missouri on Tuesday.

One inmate was quickly taken into custody in Missouri shortly after the escape.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol located the four remaining escaped inmates Friday night while conducting a stop for a traffic violation. 

Troopers stopped a Scion TC on the state Route 4 bypass at state Route 129 in Fairfield Township. When troopers approached the vehicle and spoke with the occupants, later determined to be the four escaped inmates, the inmates fled in the vehicle, causing a pursuit.

The driver stopped the vehicle on Brooke Hill Court, near Willow Brook Drive in Liberty Township, and all four inmates then fled on foot, according to patrol. Troopers took two of the men, Sebastian and McSean, into custody during the pursuit.

Officers with the West Chester Police Department then found Tucker and took him into custody at 2:15 a.m. The last missing inmate, Pace, was taken into custody by deputies from the Butler County Sheriff’s Office just after 9 a.m. Saturday morning, approximately one-half mile from where all four fled on foot.
