State troopers nabbed Donald J. White, 46, of Brockway, who escaped from Clearfield County Jail in Lawrence Township on May 30.
Clearfield County District Attorney Ryan Sayers and Lawrence Township Police Chief Douglas Clark said White was apprehended by Ridgway and DuBois State Police.
White was in a car and was apprehended by state troopers following a vehicle chase, Sayers and Clark said.
Sayers said it was a coordinated effort between state police and the Clearfield County District Attorney’s Office. White was apprehended after receiving information about his whereabouts.
“Thanks to the tireless and diligent (work) of the state police, White is back in custody,” Sayers said.
Sayers also asked the public to report any information they have about the escapees or any crimes because if it is actionable, the police will follow.
White and Robert Lee Miller Jr., 42, of Clearfield, were outside on a grass cutting detail when they fled on foot on May 30.
Miller remains at large and Sayers said any information on his whereabouts can be provided to the Lawrence Township Police Department or the state police.
White has been incarcerated on charges in two separate cases, and his charges include kidnapping – felony 1st degree, unlawful duress – felony 1st degree, common assault – felony 2nd degree, terrorist threats – felony 1st degree , and common assault and harassment — both first-degree misdemeanors.
His bond was set at 100,000 monetary dollars, which he did not pay.
He was also charged with criminal escape in Clearfield County.
Miller was incarcerated for receiving stolen property – first-degree misdemeanor, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
