Whitley County escapee back in custody

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Authorities say an inmate is back in custody after escaping from the Whitley County Detention Center.

According to WKYT-TV, 34-year-old Shannon Wynn was picked up by police around 9:45 a.m. on Saturday walking along the side of the road near Interstate 75.

He was taken into custody without incident. Wynn walked away from the center last Monday.

Thirty-nine-year-old Katherine Wheeler has been charged with hindering apprehension and second-degree escape for allegedly helping Wynn evade police.

Wynn was arrested in January for second-offense manufacturing meth, endangering the welfare of a minor, possession of controlled substances and for a parole violation.
