Charlton Co. escapee caught in Coffee County

COFFEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Authorities have caught an inmate that escaped while being transferred to the Coffee County Jail.

According to a report, Troy Wilson Lambert was at an entrance to the jail around 4:30 p.m. when he was somehow able to remove the handcuffs he was in and ran away.

Authorities said that an officer went to grab a wheelchair to transport the inmate into the jail, after he complained of being in pain. When the officer returned to the van Lambert had removed his handcuffs and ran.

Lambert climbed a razor wire fence during his escape. He was later captured around 5:30 p.m. Saturday evening near railroad tracks behind a Coffee subdivision, according to authorities.

Lambert was charged in Charlton County on battery-domestic violence and burglary charges.

The Coffee County Jail currently houses inmates for the Charlton County Sheriff's Office.
