Inmate Who Walked Away From Work Detail Is Caught

Mark Andrew Cope

A Coffee County jail inmate who escaped last week was arrested after crashing a stolen car during a police chase.
DeKalb County investigators arrested Mark Cope Saturday afternoon.
Cope had walked away from a work detail in Manchester on Thursday but was spotted Saturday in Warren County.
He led investigators on a high-speed chase across the county line towards Smithville, where he ran off the road and hit an embankment. He tried to run away but was caught by authorities.
