The last two of three juveniles who escaped a correctional facility last month have been captured.
Escapees Tayshon Holmes, 17, Jashon Jones, 15, were captured Thursday, Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones said.
A third escapee, Robert Earl Smith Jr., 16, was captured on July 3.
The trio escaped the Henley-Young-Patton Juvenile Justice Center just before midnight on June 27 by overpowering a guard and taking the guard’s keys.
Holmes and Jones are also persons of interest in a Thursday morning carjacking.
