Escaped prisoner just caught in East GA

Posted: Updated:
PORTAL, GA (WALB) -

Christopher Burnette was caught close to his home area of Bulloch County about 10:55 this morning.

Warden Billy Howell tells WALB that he was in a mobile home near Twin City, which is in Emanuel County.

He walked away from a work detail of the Colquitt Correctional Institute a couple of days ago, where he was serving time for multiple convictions.

A woman was also taken into custody by the task force that caught Burnette.

More later from WALB.
