WALB viewer helps land escaped inmate back in jail

Posted: Updated:

That second inmate who escaped from the Ben Hill County Jail is back behind bars.

25-year-old James Villers stopped by a home to ask for water and to use the phone Wednesday night.

The folks there had seen his picture here on WALB.  They called the Sheriff's Office who called out K-9 units and a State Patrol helicopter.

Villers was found hiding in a vacant home at the corner of Fairview Church Road and Camp Brooklyn Road about 7:20 Wednesday night.

He's now charged with burglary, criminal trespassing and escape.

The inmate who escaped with him, 20-year-old Dillon Spencer, was found hiding in a shed near Highway 182 just before nine Wednesday morning.
