ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Five days after he escaped from the Colquitt County Jail, a man deputies considered dangerous is back behind bars.

Thirty-three year old Anthony Moses Jordan escaped from the jail's exercise yard when other inmates caused a diversion Monday afternoon. He scaled a maintenance fence, slipped between the razor wire and ran off.

Jordan was arrested around 12:30 Friday afternoon when the Sheriff's office got a tip he was at a home on First Avenue Northwest in Moultrie. Deputies surrounded the home with the help of the U.S. Marshal's Task Force and wrestled Jordan to the ground after he tried to run.

Twenty-four year old Tonya Fielder, 30 year old Kevin Jordan, and 20 year old Christopher Willoughby were arrested and charged with hindering the apprehension of a criminal. Jordan was turned over to the Georgia Department of Corrections.
