WHITE CO., IL (WFIE) -

The last inmate in what was called a manhunt has been captured.

Two of the three inmates, who escaped the White County Jail in June, were captured over the weekend.

Officials tell us Johnny Tipton was caught in Hardin County, Illinois. We're told a tip led the sheriff's office to a camper outside of Cave in Rock. 

They're taking him to the White County jail. He will be held on escape charges with a bond of $100,000 cash.

According to White County Sheriff's Office, Zachary Shock, 24-years-old, was spotted around 9 p.m. Friday walking down a road in Gallatin County. Gallatin County deputies and Illinois State Police made the arrest without any incidents.

When deputies found Shock, he did have a gun, but did not make any attempt to pull the weapon on the officers. Shock told deputies he was using the gun, which he found in a nearby cabin, for his protection and had been living in the forest for the past week.

Shock is now back in the White County Jail.

Shock rejoins Justin Bray, 28-years-old, who was the first escaped inmate to be captured. Bray was caught near the New Harmony Bridge a few days after the trio escaped the jail.

All three of the inmates are now back in custody.
