Escapee Donald Jack Woodcock III was apprehended today around 8:30 a.m. by the Madison County Sheriff's Office. The department received a call from a citizen reporting that the escapee was seen walking along the same area next to Canton Academy, where he was spotted Friday.
The escapee was wearing the athletic clothing described in Friday's sighting and was arrested without incident.
The agencies involved in Woodcock’s capture were MDOC’s Corrections Investigation Division, the Probation/Parole agents & K9, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the Canton Police Department, and the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. “Good work, and thank you, to all the agencies involved,” said MDOC Commissioner Marshall Fisher.
Woodcock is serving four years for malicious mischief and non-residential burglary in Harrison County.
He will be transported to the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility, and now faces an additional 5-year sentence, if convicted of escape
