Police say two men wanted after escaping from a county jail in east central Georgia have been caught in Fort Dodge.

Police Chief Tim Carmody says 24-year-old Matthew S. Findley and 26-year-old Jeffery R. Webb are wanted for escape from Swainsboro, Ga., on Nov. 11. Both are from the Swainsboro area.

Georgia authorities notified police that the two may be in Fort Dodge.

They were located at a local residence Tuesday afternoon and taken into custody.

Findley is charged with murder in Georgia and Webb faces a charge of aggravated assault.

The men were among six prisoners that had escaped after a plumbing worker at the jail left a door unlocked. The other four were caught within a few days.
