A man who escaped a week ago from the Fulton County (Ky.) Jail was recaptured Monday.
Christopher B. Roper of Paducah, Ky., was arrested Monday in Calloway County, Ky., by the Kentucky State Police and lodged in the Fulton County Jail, according to the KSP.
He was charged with second-degree escape.
The KSP had been notified of the escape shortly after noon Aug. 23. Roper, who was serving state time for burglary and theft charges, apparently had escaped about 8 that morning.
Roper was reported to have ties to both the Paducah and Mayfield, Ky., areas.
