For Georgia escapees, end of road is a driveway in Tennessee

Police finally ran the pair to ground in Christiana. The fugitives entered the home of an elderly couple, tied them up and stole their auto, leading police on a vehicle chase, Emmett said.

It is believed that Rowe and DuBose tied up a couple on Kindree Road in Shelbyville and stole a black Jeep and guns.

Eventually, the men are accused of breaking into an elderly couple's home in Tennessee, holding them captive, and stealing their vehicle.

Their weapons were recovered at the crash site and no one was injured in the chase, according to the news station.

They stumbled out of the woods and ran into a man in his yard armed with an AR-15.

They took off with the Honda driver's phone, leaving 31 other inmates locked in the bus with the two dead guards, and were gone by the time help arrived.

Authorities have said Rowe and Dubose overpowered and disarmed the two guards as they were transporting 33 inmates between prisons.

Goodwin said the men surrendered after they were approached. Sometime that night, a Ford F-250 was stolen in Morgan County.

"It happened the way we thought it would", added Georgia Bureau of Investigation Director Vernon Keenan.

This is a good time for all area residents to again thank all law enforcement personnel for the job they do in keeping the public safe from hardened criminals like Dubose and Rowe and in bringing them to justice.

"This is a great day in Tennessee", Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said in a news conference.

Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills had announced Thursday the reward had been upped to $130,000.

A photograph posted on the website of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution showed the two suspects handcuffed and lying on the ground shirtless with about a dozen law enforcement personnel surrounding them.

The fugitives tied them up, and when the man tried to break free, they tied him up tighter, putting socks on his hands so he couldn't loosen his bonds, Swing said. The pair were arrested by Rutherford County sheriff's deputies at the Christiana home and taken to the county jail.

The men are being held in Tennessee awaiting extradition back to Middle Georgia. He also apologized to the families of the victims.

"I think it's a testament to the training, I think it's a testament to our individuals and I think it's a testament to our men and women at the sheriff's office, that they handled themselves very well in a very tight, tough situation. My sympathies to the families".

Friends, relatives and known acquaintances had been interviewed.

Two Georgia inmates were last reported making their way north after authorities said they murdered two corrections officers.

Funerals are being planned for the slain guards: Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue, both transfer sergeants at Baldwin State Prison.

"They were inside the caged area of the bus", Sills said.

Thirty-one other inmates remained on the bus, idling along the side of the highway. The two escaped inmates sought in the killings of two guards on a.

Both inmates have lengthy criminal records.

Rowe was serving a sentence of up to life in prison for armed robbery and aggravated assault in a 2001 case. Dubose, 24, and a member of the Aryan prison gang known as the Ghostface Gangsters, was sentenced to 20 years in Elbert County, and that sentence will not expire until 2034.
