Billboards offering reward for Georgia escapees

Search for escaped inmates expanding as it enters third day

The search for two Georgia prison inmates who killed two guards and stole a pickup truck has expanded nationwide, Sills said.

According to a Tweet from Ga.

Ricky Dubose and Donnie Russell Rowe were being transported from Baldwin State Prison to the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson in Putnam County when they managed to slip out of the cage in the rear of the bus.

Authorities said Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose were captured Thursday in Tennessee after leading police on a chase by vehicle and by foot. More info will be forthcoming. "If somebody is helping them and we find out who they are, they will be prosecuted as participants in this crime, there's no doubt about that".

It's been two days since an audacious prison escape in rural Georgia left two guards dead and two fugitives on the loose.

Sills, a sheriff in Putnam County for three decades, sent a personal message during the conference to the escapees: "You need to surrender". The publication also says he was promoted to sergeant at Baldwin State Prison in 2012 and then took a job at the prison's transportation unit last summer. Born in 1973, Rowe was being held for life without the possibility of parole for multiple armed robbery convictions in Bibb County from October 2001.

Jasper County law enforcement is on high alert Thursday afternoon after an unconfirmed sighting of two Georgia escaped prisoners - suspected in the slaying of two prison guards - was reported near the Switzerland area.

Authorities say Dubose and Rowe escaped after killing two prison guards during a bus transport in Georgia. One of them fatally shot both guards, and then they jumped out and carjacked a driver who pulled up behind the bus on a rural highway and fled in his vehicle, Sills said.

They continued to monitor the interstate exit ramps into Thursday evening.

The New York State Corrections Officers Police Benevolent Fund contributed, as did a private business, Correct Care, that works in the prison system, he said.

Authorities have said 43-year-old Donnie Russell Rowe and 24-year-old Ricky Dubose overpowered and killed 42-year-old Sgt. Christopher Monica and 58-year-old Sgt.

The FBI said these men are armed and unsafe and if you think you see them, call 911 immediately.

Sills said a reward had climbed to $130,000 for information that led to their arrests, and officials warned that anyone helping the inmates would be prosecuted.

Christopher Monica had been employed with the Georgia Department of Corrections since 2009, according to the department.

Elbert sheriff's Capt. Darren Scarborough said Dubose was well known by local law enforcement for his long criminal history.

"We're trying to get this bus unloaded", Massee said.
