Western KY escapee captured

CENTRAL CITY, KY (WAVE) - A traffic stop led Kentucky State Police right to an escaped inmate.

Troopers say Anthony Wayne Hunt, 27, was a passenger in the car they had pulled over in Central City Tuesday.

His arrest came just one day after authorities say he walked away from work release.

Hunt is back in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
