All escaped inmates now captured

UPDATE: 

COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) - All of the eight escapees from the Marion-Walthall Regional Jail will soon be in custody.

Family members are now bringing in Eric Ball to authorities. He was reported to be in the Memory community.

Authorities said Derrick Rainey was apprehended Monday night at a motel in south Hattiesburg.  Rainey's girlfriend was also taken into custody and will be charged with aiding in his escape. 

David Johnson, Ricky Roberts, and Mickah Lott were apprehended Monday afternoon near Little Rock, Ark, 342 miles from the jail.

The three were traveling in a truck with a Mississippi licence plate when an Arkansas State Trooper witnessed them sideswipe three other vehicles.

They had traveled first to Memphis, then west on I-40, authorities said.

A firearm was also discovered inside.

About 2:30 p.m. John David Smith and Brandon Silas were caught by authorities off of Hwy 44 near the Improve community, about 10 miles northeast of the jail.

Deputies said residents reported seeing Eric Ball and Derrick Rainey in the same general vicinity.

Earlier today, authorities captured Toney Clark about 10 north of Columbia.

The eight escaped between 3 and 4 a.m., but the breakout wasn't discovered until about 5:40 a.m.

Sheriff Berkley Hall said the inmates apparently used a bed piece to chip away at a concrete wall.

The inmates will now be transported to the Mississippi State Penitentiary in Parchman. Each faces an additional five-year sentence for escape.
