SPRING GROVE VILLAGE (FOX19) -

Two men who escaped from Blackburn Correctional Complex in Lexington were found and taken back into custody in Spring Grove Village Saturday.

Willard Wilson, 48, and Donnie Johnson, 38, reportedly escaped from the correctional complex on January 28. Police said that they may have connections in Cincinnati, so Cincinnati Police were looking for the men. They found them near Spring Grove Avenue and Winton Road in Spring Grove Village.

Wilson, who was just denied parole last week, is serving a 22-year sentence for burglary, receiving stolen property, escape and a gun charge out of Kenton and Boone Counties. Johnson is serving time for robbery and receiving stolen property.
