The Cass County fugitive has been found and captured. The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office confirmed this morning that Charles Obin Spraberry, 44 is back in custody after he escaped a Cass County jail in Linden on Monday evening.

According to a post on Facebook from Judge Travis Ransom, Spraberry was able to escape after assaulting a male jailer with a knife Monday (August 29) at around 7:45 PM.  He then came upon a female jailer and forced her to open the door and then he ran out of the jail. Several law agencies including Texas troopers with TDPS and Cass County deputies went on a manhunt with tracking dogs but when they couldn't find a trail the U.S. Marshals were called to help with the search.
