Third Grainger County escaped inmate captured

SEYMOUR, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Sevier County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that David Valentine was captured Tuesday night in Seymour.

Valentine was one of three inmates who escaped from the Grainger County jail earlier this month.

Officials say US Marshals arrested Valentine in the parking lot of Food City off Chapman Highway in Seymour.

The two other inmates who escaped, Dennis Rucker and Shane Farrow, were caught last week in Pigeon Forge.
