Two Macon County Jail inmates have been captured by authorities after escaping on Sunday night, October 18, 2020.
The escapees were identified as Joseph Whittemore and Jeremy Fuller.
Sometime after escaping, the duo is said to have stolen a van, which was later located in Allen County, Kentucky, specifically in the S. Oak Forest and Fleet Rd. area of Adolphus.
The Allen County Sheriff’s Department assisted the Macon County Sheriff’s Department in their search for the inmates.
Fuller and Whittemore were captured on Monday afternoon, October 19, 2020. See next week’s Macon County Chronicle for more details.
