Escaped convict caught in Columbia County after multi-agency search

An escaped convict from Hamilton County on the run Tuesday and Wednesday was caught after a multi-agency search effort, authorities say.

Percell Brinson escaped from the Hamilton County Work Camp Tuesday and was reportedly jumping from vehicle to vehicle in the Fort White, Florida area while running from law enforcement, says the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.

Members of the Department of Corrections and the Columbia County and Alachua County sheriff's offices worked to find Brinson. 

He was originally in his mother's 2015 brown Nissan Altima but reportedly abandoned the vehicle.

He was arrested in the area of Albany Road after a brief foot chase.
