An inmate who escaped on Halloween night in Lowndes County is now back in custody.
Terry Leshaun Brooks was found around 2:00 a.m. on Friday, November 3.
Lowndes County Sheriff Deputies along with the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force took Brooks into custody after a short foot chase in the 1300 block of 9th Ave North in Columbus.
He is now back at the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center with a new charge of escape. Sheriff Eddie Hawkins said,
