(AP) – Two escapees from the federal prison in Forrest City
have been recaptured in Fayetteville.
The U.S. Marshals Service said Wednesday that Devoy Nokes and George Roberts
were arrested without incident Tuesday at a home in south Fayetteville by
officers with the Western Arkansas Fugitive Task Force.
Authorities say the two men had escaped the Federal Correctional Institute in
Forrest City on Monday.
Nokes was serving 15 years for federal firearms violations and Roberts was
serving 121/2 years for distribution of methamphetamine.
Both men now face federal escape charges.
