Authorities in Georgia have arrested a Jessamine County jail inmate who escaped last month after posing as another prisoner who was scheduled to be released.
Justin Darland, 29, of Nicholasville was arrested in Covington about 9:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Jessamine County Sheriff's Office. He was driving a truck that had been reported stolen in Lexington.
Georgia authorities have charged Darland with receiving stolen property and giving false information. In Jessamine County, he is charged with second-degree escape, theft of identity, second-degree burglary and being a persistent felony offender.
Darland was released April 25 after identifying himself to jail staff as Robert White, his cellmate, jail officials said.
White, who was to have been released after completing 34 days on a misdemeanor probation violation, was charged Sunday with second-degree complicity to escape. Police think White, 29, assisted Darland in the identity switch.
