Escaped Convict Caught

Timothy Eads, who escaped from jail yesterday, was caught downtown at 8:30pm this evening. He was spotted on the corner of Avon and Garrett by two men, who shouted out to him by name. Eads took off running, and hid under a moving van parked in front of the Rentway across from Spudnuts. The men called 911, and police arrived quickly with a K9 unit. A German shepard dragged the man out by his head, from the undercarriage of the truck. Bleeding badly, he was taken to the hospital, where it was discovered that he had a key tied to a tooth in his mouth. Police say that it’s the key to his shackles, which he was not wearing at the time that he was arrested. The story comes from WVIR‘s 11pm broadcast.
