OZARK — An escaped inmate from the Franklin County jail has been captured about 18 miles away in Paris.

The Southwest Times Record reported that 52-year-old Toby Tygart was recaptured Tuesday at a Paris home. The Franklin County sheriff said Tygart walked away from the jail Sunday afternoon. He did kitchen and painting work at the jail.

A Logan County sheriff's office spokesman said Tygart was taken into custody without incident. He said four other people at the residence were arrested on suspicion of felony hindering apprehension. The spokesman said it isn't clear how the arrested people know Tygart.
