JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - After a high-speed chase on an interstate Friday, Mississippi law enforcement officers captured the final two inmates of the four who escaped from a county jail this week.

Montreal Damon Anderson, 25, and John Rollins, 23, were spotted Friday afternoon in a pickup stolen from the Jackson suburb of Clinton, said Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain.

Troopers chased them west on Interstate 20 to Vicksburg, and the inmates crashed the truck as they turned onto Mississippi Highway 61 North, Strain said. They ran, but were caught by troopers and local officers, he said.

Anderson, Rollins and two other inmates - Jermaine Wilson, 19, Kevin Holmes, 18 - escaped the Hinds County Jail in Raymond about 12:45 a.m. Monday in what Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis said appeared to be a planned escape.

Wilson, who is charged with capital murder in the 2012 slaying of a Jackson woman, was caught later Monday. Holmes, charged with three counts of armed robbery, was caught Tuesday.

Rollins is charged with auto theft and false pretense. Anderson is charged with recovered stolen property and is jailed on a felony hold.

The escape remains under investigation. It was not immediately clear what additional charges the four men could face or whether they will be put in a different jail.
