The pair had been on the run since about 10 p.m. Nov. 16, when the two left the minimum-security unit at Morrison Correctional Institution in Richmond County by climbing out a window and then scaling a fence.

Information provided by Pilkington after his capture yesterday led officers to a junkyard in Marion where the two escapees had been living in old cars for the past few days.  They found Noles there and arrested him after a short chase.

Yesterday afternoon, officers spotted the pair under a railroad bridge in Marion and were able to capture Pilkington, but Noles got away and eluded them for one more day.

Both inmates will face charges for felony escape from prison and will be returned to incarceration in a higher custody level.
