Video shows fugitives in western Kentucky school twice

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police report that two fugitives from a western Kentucky work farm have been captured in Georgia.

Police said James Whisman and Jesse Sebastian were arrested by the Georgia State Patrol on Friday in central Georgia's Lamar County.

The men escaped from the Western Kentucky Correctional Complex in Fredonia on Aug. 18.

WPSD-TV in Paducah reported that Principal Glen Ringstaff reviewed surveillance video from the Caldwell County School Campus in Princeton and found the men had twice broken into the school building.

When Ringstaff documented two intruders late at night, he called the Kentucky Department of Corrections and officers identified them as Whisman and Sebastian.
