Final Escapee from Boyd Co. Jail Captured

After nearly 3 weeks on the run, officials in Boyd Co are reporting that the fourth and final escaped inmate from the Boyd Co Jail is in custody. Authorities say Thomas Bentley was arrested by the Ashland Police Dept. on Wednesday. Bentley was arrested in the 100 block of Armco Blvd. in Ashland following a short foot pursuit. The other 3 inmates, Austin Childers, Isiah Bare and Joseph Salyers were all captured by Jan.7. The four had escaped on Dec. 28 through an air conditioning duct near their jail cells and made it to the roof, where they jumped down and took off from the jail.
