Both suspects, who escaped from the Anderson County Detention Center Sunday night have been captured. Jason Hughes, the second escapee, who was still at large as of Tuesday morning, has been captured in Bell County Kentucky.

A Kentucky Highway Patrol officer stopped Hughes who was driving a stolen truck on Interstate 25 East. Hughes apparently stole a work truck from STEC Equipment located in Anderson after his escape. Bell is currently in custody in Bell County, Kentucky where extradition arrangements will be processed.

The Oconee County Sheriff’s office captured Travis Foster, one of the two individuals who escaped from the Anderson County Detention Center Sunday night.

After receiving a call about a suspicious male just outside of Seneca earlier this morning, Oconee County deputies responded to the area of Wells Highway and located the suspicious male. After a foot chase ensued, Sgt. David Smith of OCSO, captured Travis Eugene Foster. Foster has been transported back to Anderson County Detention Center where he will be charged with the escape.
