Escaped inmates captured near Las Vegas...what a relief!

Two men guards say escaped from the DeBaca County jail in Ft. Sumner were captured Saturday near Las Vegas, N.M.
Authorities were searching for Cody Jessup, 19, of Woodward, Okla., and Barry Wright, 23, of Higgins, Texas, since Friday night around 9 p.m., when guards say they escaped by overpowering a corrections officer.
Wright and Jessup were recaptured early Saturday afternoon in Romeroville, a small town near Las Vegas.
Detention records show both men were arrested Tuesday for allegedly stealing a vehicle, weapons and other property.
Wright also has been charged with aggravated assault on an officer and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Thank goodness. I know Maggie will be relieved. Very traumatic. I hope these two thugs get what they deserve. Throw the book at 'em. How about make them learn Suzuki book 1 in a week on a 1/10 violin. That will teach them.

We made it to Santa Fe! I look for some good creative posts this week since we all have internet and an even more precious commodity--time.
