One Of Two Escaped Giles County Inmates Has Been Captured

One of two inmates who escaped while on a work detail in Pearisburg on January 5, 2019, has been captured. 

John Kenneth Haynes was arrested earlier today in Carroll County.

The other escaped inmate, Ronald Eugene Dalton III, is still at large.

According to the Giles County Sheriff's Office, on Saturday, the two men were on a work-release program where county vehicles are kept and repaired.  A security camera caught the image of the two men walking away from their jobs.  

Authorities say the men stole a car from the detail area in the 300 block of Thomas Drive on Saturday. The vehicle was later found abandoned in a wooded area of Patrick County. 

Dalton, 36, from Dugspur, is described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall weighing 160 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. 

If anyone has information on Dalton's whereabouts, they are asked to call their local law enforcement agency immediately.
