CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Authorities in Clarksville captured a man who escaped police custody on Friday.

Cemage Darquez Garrard, 23, was arrested at 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon at an apartment in the 700 block of Main Street.

Garrard was initially arrested on Friday by bonding agents and taken to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. While deputies were processing his paperwork, Garrard took off.

Multiple agencies searched for him, but had no luck until Saturday.

“It was unfortunate Garrard got out of our custody in the first place,” said Sheriff John Fuson. “The entire process of receiving arrestees at the front entrance will be thoroughly reviewed and changes made to ensure this will not happen again.”

Fuson continued, “I had a team of seven from our office looking for him. They worked quickly to locate and safely take him back into custody without further incident.”

Garrard had multiple warrants on file, including two counts of aggravated kidnapping, two counts of aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, two counts of felony evading in a vehicle, three counts of driving on a suspended or revoked license, improper stopping at a stop sign, following to close, leaving the scene of an accident, violation of probation and escape.
