The Louisville Metro Police Department announced this morning that Justin Stumler had been tracked down about 7 miles away from the correctional facility, but his co-escapee, Jeremy Hunt, is still at large.
Hunt, who was arrested in June, is facing multiple burglary charges, it added.
Police told the station that both men were working in the jail’s kitchen when they were helped into the trash cans by three other inmates — Gary Bradford, Justin Rankin and Tajuan Burton – who are now facing two counts each of facilitation of second-degree escape. The trio pleaded not guilty Monday morning at arraignment hearings, WDRB reported.
Jail staff were tipped off to the scheme on Saturday night after a bystander saw the inmates climbing out of the trash cans.
