The last of four inmates who broke out of the Wichita County Jail Annex has been caught.

Sheriff David Duke says 19-year-old Deonte Combs, who also used several aliases, was captured at an apartment in Wichita Falls.

All four men escaped early Thursday by apparently slipping between some bars and out a vent during jail construction.

Three of the fugitives were nabbed hours later in Clay County, with help from drug-sniffing dogs. Duke says Combs, who was held on assault and drug charges, was caught Friday night.

Authorities say all four recaptured inmates are facing escape charges, along with three other people who allegedly aided the fugitives.
