Jefferson escapees re-captured
Jefferson County authorities this morning arrested two Jefferson County Jail inmates who escaped from a work detail on Thursday. William Harris, 30, and Jeffrey Allen Cross, 48, both Jefferson County residents, were arrested at 3 am at a Gatlinburg motel, according to Jefferson County Sheriff GW "Bud" McCoig. The sheriff said the truck used in the escape was found in the Western Plaza Shopping Center in Newport, Thursday afternoon. It appeared to be undamaged. McCoig said he was notified at 12:30 pm that the men had fled from the White Pine Elementary School where they were assisting with a building project. The inmates fled in a 2009 Ford 350 work truck owned by the school system. It was found later in the afternoon abandoned in the parking lot of the Western Plaza Shopping Center in Newport. Both escapees were serving sentences for Probation Violation.
