SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. — One of the three inmates who escaped the Bedford County jail has been captured.

Kevin Farrar was caught Friday in Shelbyville, a day after he and two others escaped the jail.

Andrew Philip Marshall and James David Stinnett are still being sought by the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office.

The trio shimmied their way into an attic area of the jail, then used some bed sheets tied up into a rope to climb down the building.

They made their escape Thursday afternoon, even though the jail is wedged between the Bedford County Sheriff’s office and the Shelbyville Police Department.

Marshall and Stinnett were jailed on misdemeanor charges.

Stinnett was even likely to be released from jail before Christmas, that is until he added escape charges to his record.

Farrar was jailed on felony aggravated assault charges, and was considered by local authorities to be the most dangerous of the three who escaped.

Anyone who spots Marshall or Stinnett are urged to call police. Sheriff Swing says citizens should not approach the men.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to call 931-684-4566.
