The sheriff’s office says Caleb Joe Thomas and Ridge Scott Dains were captured Monday morning near Walla Walla, while driving a stolen vehicle.
The men were reported missing from the prison in Cottonwood early Saturday.
On Sunday, the sheriff’s office received a report that a vehicle, firearms and ammunition had been stolen from a residence west of Grangeville. Clothing found at the scene matched that worn by the inmates.
The description of the vehicle was entered into a national database, and officers in Walla Walla County spotted the vehicle Monday morning.
Thomas’ criminal record includes first-degree arson and grand theft, while Dains’ record includes a burglary conviction.
Dains and Thomas will be returned to Idaho County, where they face escape charges, Sheriff Doug Giddings said.
