WALSENBURG, Colo. — One of two inmates who escaped from a jail in a small Colorado town by locking a guard in a cell has been arrested after being found in the crawl space of a home.

Authorities say Jerry Williams was arrested Tuesday in Walsenburg, about 75 miles southeast of the jail in Westcliffe. He and Bryan Webb escaped on Jan. 13. The Custer County Sheriff’s Office says authorities received tips that the two escapees had been living in the home. Williams was taken back to the Westcliffe jail for booking but then moved to an undisclosed location.
