Posted on January 04, 2013
A Maury County Jail inmate who walked off his work detail and escaped Wednesday afternoon was arrested early yesterday as he walked beside a road in Indianapolis, authorities said.
Jason D. Galvan, 32, will face an extradition hearing as early as today, said Maury County Sheriff’s Capt. Jimmy Tennyson.
As a jail trusty, Galvan was assigned to work at the Maury County Animal Shelter and was last seen walking away from the job site around 4 pm Wednesday wearing his green-and-white striped jail uniform, according to the sheriff’s department.
Authorities issued a public plea for help in finding him.
Tennyson said Indianapolis police arrested Galvin as he was walking on a roadside about 2:40 am yesterday and turned him over to the Marion County Sheriff’s Department for custody.
“A warrant was issued for the escape, and he’ll answer that when he gets back,” Tennyson said.
Jail records show Galvan had completed 129 days of a 544 day sentence for domestic assault, harassment, and violation of probation and a protective order.
