Jail escapee caught after three months on the run

BELL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- A Bell County jail escapee who’s been on the run for nearly three months was captured in Tennessee, according to a report from W-R-I-L.

Investigators say in August, Matthew Price and David Mosley attacked jail staff, sprayed bleach in their face and eyes, overpowered them and escaped.

Mosley was caught in Pineville two days later, but Price was still free until Friday, when he was caught in Claiborne County.

Reports say Price is accused of breaking into a pharmacy there and faces charges in Virginia.
