Douglas -- One of two South Georgia inmates who escaped from jail is now in custody.

27-year-old Erick Lavone Jones was one of two escapees on the loose following a Friday morning jailbreak from the Coffee County Jail.

Jones was captured in Jacksonville, Florida where he remains in the Pre-Trial Detention Facility.

He's being held as a fugitive of justice.

In all, three inmates escaped Friday morning from medium security lockup at Coffee County Jail.

Authorities are still looking for 19-year-old Brandon Vilvert.

A $500.00 reward could be issued to anyone with information that will lead police to his capture.
