An inmate at the Floyd County Jail has been captured, following his escape from an outside detail on Wednesday.
Charles Richard Bowman, age 56, was captured a short time after an alert was issued by the Sheriff’s Office. His escape led to a temporary lockdown of schools in the area.
The FCSO posted a statement on their Facebook page after the capture which said, “We’d like to thank all the news agencies for quickly sharing the release and citizens that also helped us spread the word. Thank you to the Fugitive Task Force, Floyd County Prison, Department of Corrections, RPD, FCPD, GSP, and Norfolk Southern for assisting us in a quick capture.”
