Authorities say escaped Georgia inmates captured

Authorities say escaped Georgia inmates captured

Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose were taken into custody on Pruitt Road after the pursuit.

The theft was not discovered until after 7 a.m. Wednesday, giving the pair plenty of time "to get out of state", Sills said.

Sills had described the fugitives as violent repeat offenders who are extremely risky, having taken the guards' 9 mm pistols. "Our focus right now is to apprehend these two risky criminals".

David LeValley, FBI special agent in charge of the Atlanta office, said the manhunt had been expanded.

The two men had been on the run since Tuesday, when they are accused of having overpowered and killed Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue. Both guards were shot and killed before the escapees carjacked a driver who happened to pull up behind the bus as it stopped on a rural highway, said Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills.

"We need the eyes and ears of everybody, really, in this country to be on the lookout for these two individuals", Sills said Thursday.

Sills said it was hard to determine if the two men were being helped by anyone on the outside but said there were an infinite number of possibilities since both men have friends and family in the area. He added, "We are looking for them anywhere they might be on planet Earth".

Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Greg Dozier said the loss of the two officers has caused him "pain and anguish that began in the toes of my feet and went up to my heart". He also has "ghost" tattooed on his right forefinger and "face" on his right pinky finger, signs of membership in the Ghost Face Gangsters.

And they're urging people to take care.

"They have known each other for quite a while", Myrick said.

Rowe and Dubose had occasionally shared a prison cell; they left more than two dozen other inmates behind in handcuffs when they fled the bus.

He said investigators believe Rowe and DuBose ransacked a home in Madison, Morgan County, Ga. around 10 or 11 a.m. Police say they attempted to stop the unsafe duo after spotting a auto they believed the two were in. "If somebody is helping them and we find out who they are, they will be prosecuted as participants in this crime, there's no doubt about that".

Monica had worked for the facility for almost eight years after being hired in October of 2009. Rowe has been serving a life sentence since 2002 with convictions including armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a crime and aggravated assault. They disarmed one of the officers and fatally shot both.
