IDAHO FALLS, ID - Two men who walked away from the Great Falls Pre-Release Center have been nabbed in Idaho.
Idaho State Police say they were told that the two escapees, Christopher Ethridge and Jerron Mitchell-Fuller, were believed to be headed into Idaho in a stolen Ford F250 pickup. A vehicle matching the description was reported involved in a gas drive-off in Island Park, Idaho at around 11:25 a.m., and the men were found by a trooper about 35 minutes later, according to a news release.
ISP reports that the suspects fled and led law enforcement on a high-speed pursuit. Spikes were set up on U.S. Highway 20, which the suspects were able to avoid. The men pulled over and were taken into custody without incident several miles later.
Mitchell-Fuller, 22, of Glendive and Ethridge, 28, of Billings now face charges of eluding, possession of stolen property and theft. Ethridge will be cited for failure to purchase a driver's license.
