A 30-year old escapee from the Rutherford County Correctional Work Center was back in custody Friday after 27 days of freedom.
Sheriff's Warrants Capt. David Hailey said Criminal Warrants Detectives Jack Keisling and Gene Thorpe apprehended Baucom in Goodlettsville Friday (4/27/2018).
Fugitive Justin Baucom heard the heavy steel door locked shut behind him. The Smyrna resident escaped from the work center April 1.
"Both deputies put in countless surveillance and tracking hours attempting to locate Baucom," Hailey said.
Keisling charged Baucom with felony escape. He is also facing charges of violation of community corrections. He is being held in Rutherford County Adult Detention Center while awaiting court dates.
