LINDEN, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say two jail inmates who escaped custody in Perry County have been captured.

According to WTVF-TV (https://bit.ly/1SagrnR ), authorities said Raymond D. Gibson and Michael William Brown escaped jail on Friday night.

Both were found in a briar patch field around noon Saturday.

Officials said protocol was not followed, which may have allowed the inmates to escape through an unsecured gap at the bottom of a chain link fence.

Two employees have been placed on administrative leave without pay pending an investigation.
