Antwone Wilson, 27, arrested at Titusville hotel
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA (AL) – The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force and Bevard County sheriff’s deputies took Antwone Wilson into custody about 1 a.m., said Alabama Department of Corrections spokesman Bob Horton.
The 27-year-old fugitive was found at a hotel in Titusville, Fla. where he surrendered without incident. He was taken to the Brevard County Jail to await extradition back to Alabama.
Wilson and Ronald Odell King, also 27, made their getaway five days ago from the St. Clair County Correctional Facility in Springville. Both were last seen at their morning meal about 3:30 a.m. Monday and were discovered gone from their cell at 5:15 a.m. and at that point the facility was locked down.
Authorities have not yet detailed how the pair got out of the lockup, which is a maximum-security prison. “The Alabama Department of Corrections is investigating the details of the escape, following leads, and is working with all levels of law enforcement to locate the inmates,” Horton said in a prepared statement.
