Two men who escaped from Robertson County Detention Facility early Wednesday morning were apprehended Friday in Texas.
The inmates, Joshua Edward Caldwell, 29, and Jessie Louis Lobbins, 26, were taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service around 9 p.m. at a house in Denton, TX.
Electronic billboards had been placed in five states, including Tennessee, featuring the mugshots of the two escapees.
A $10,000 reward had also been offered in the case.
The men escaped at about 2 a.m., but officials did not notice they were gone until 4 a.m., according to Robertson County Sheriff Bill Holt.
The inmates escaped by gaining access to the roof of the jail and jumping over a razor wire fence.
Lobbins was convicted in federal court in Nashville in August of murder, carrying a firearm in relation to a crime of violence and tampering with a witness. He is known to be a member of the Traveling Vice Lords Nation gang and was facing a life sentence in prison.
Joshua Caldwell was in federal pre-trial detention for conspiracy to distribute marijuana and methamphetamine.
U.S. Marshals, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Robertson County sheriff's office assisted in the search.
