HCSD nabs one of the two escaped prisoners

HINDS COUNTY, Miss. - Authorities are saying they have captured one of the two capital murder suspects who escaped from Hinds County Jail Thursday morning.

Deputies said Gerome Moore is back in custody, but they are still searching for Malcolm Landfair. Moore and Landfair escaped by digging through a brick wall.

But this is not the first time Moore has escaped. Moore and two other inmates escaped prison back in May 2015.

If you think you have seen Landfair, please call the Hinds County Sheriff's Office at 601-974-2900.
