All three inmates who escaped from the Bedford County Jail on Thursday morning have been captured. The inmates escaped by using a fork stuck in the locking mechanism of a kitchen door. After leaving the jail, the men made their way through a wire fence surrounding the detention center.
Captured were 20-year-old John Vincent Lovvorn and 22-year-old James Bradley Lynch. They were taken into custody around 4:30 a.m. Friday morning by deputies from Warren and Bedford Counties. They were found hiding out in Warren County. Both men are from Shelbyville. The third escapee who is from Murfreesboro is 34-year old Allen Ray Harris. He was found at a Murfreesboro motel on Friday morning as well.
Lovvorn was being held on charges of aggravated robbery, burglary, theft of property and vandalism. Allen was jailed for failing to appear in court and Lynch was in jail for the initiation of a process resulting in meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, simple possession and violation of probation.
