SANDY HOOK, Ky. (WTVQ) – One of two inmates who escaped from trash pickup detail in Johnson County March 22, 2018, was captured in his home county Tuesday, according to State Police.

Investigators say they received information of a possible location for 24-year old Brian Olson, of Sandy Hook, in Elliott County.

Acting on that information, State Police say they found Olson on B Ison Road in Elliott County.  Investigators say they found him running through the woods behind a home where he was taken back into custody.  He was returned to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.
