LOUISVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A man who escaped from the Union County jail has been captured in Winston County.

Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards tells WTVA-TV in Tupelo (https://bit.ly/1HyHaoZ ) that 28-year-old Michael Wayne Shafer was arrested Friday while attempting to hide out at his mother’s house in Louisville.

Edwards says Shafer’s girlfriend, sister and brother have also been taken into custody for aiding and abetting. Their names have not been released.

Last week, Shafer was arrested by law enforcement in Winston County on drug charges and returned to Union County. He broke out of the Union County jail in New Albany on Thursday.
