Ky: Inmate who walked off, found in Ohio

A central Kentucky jailer says an inmate who walked away from a work detail last week has been located in Ohio.

Hardin County jailer Danny Allen says 20-year-old Ryan Jones of LaFollette, Tenn., was taken into custody Tuesday night in Fairborn, Ohio, and was taken to the Greene County jail, which is near Dayton.

Jones originally was arrested in Whitley County, Ky., on charges of first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree fleeing or evading police. The state transferred Jones to Hardin County in April for the work-release program. Jones was scheduled to be released in May.

Kentucky State Police had said they thought Jones was headed to the Dayton area after his escape last Friday.
