COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a convict who escaped from a maximum security prison using equipment flown into the facility by drone is now being held in South Carolina's highest security facility.
Online records showed Jimmy Causey was being held Thursday in a lockdown unit at Kirkland Correctional Institution in Columbia.
Authorities say Causey used wire cutters apparently brought in via drone and coordinated with others by cellphone to escape from the Lieber Correctional Institution near Charleston. He was on the run for three days before being captured last week in Austin, Texas.
