The Todd County Jail inmate who escaped from a work detail last week has been arrested again.
Todd County Jailer Greg Allen says the Meade County Sheriff’s Office arrested 19-year old Cody Alexander Claycomb at a party there early this morning. Allen says Claycomb is also accused of stealing a vehicle and is charged with escape and felony theft in addition to several other crimes.
Claycomb walked away from a work detail near the Dollar General Store on West Main Street last Tuesday afternoon. Allen said Claycomb previously voiced a desire to go back to Meade County, so that’s where police assumed he’d be.
The jailer said Claycomb had a good possibility to get out on parole this fall, but will now face years in prison if convicted and will always be considered a flight risk without the privilege of being on a work crew in whatever jail he goes to.
