The last of three inmates who escaped from a Wisconsin prison last week is back in custody after surrendering to law enforcement Saturday in Minneapolis.
Minneapolis police say officers and Department of Corrections officials found Jesse Jamal Fairly, 26, at a home in the 1600 block of Plymouth Avenue. Fairly surrendered and was taken into custody without incident around 11 a.m., police said.
Fairly was one of three wanted for escaping from the St. Croix Correctional Center in New Richmond on Wednesday. Serving a sentence for burglary, Fairly escaped the minimum-security regional prison along with Andre Lee Vance, formerly of Madison, Wis., and Kyle John Peterson, formerly of Winnebago County, Wis., around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday.
The two other men were arrested separately in Wisconsin on Friday. Peterson, 19, was arrested around 7 a.m. at a house in Whitewater, Wis., after police received a tip of his whereabouts. Vance, 21, was found in Madison, Wis., around 3 p.m.
At the time of their escape, Vance was serving time for burglary and operating a motor vehicle without owner consent and Peterson was serving a sentence for forgery and drug possession.
