All 3 White Co. Jail Escapees Now Back in Custody

Jul 10, 2018

The two remaining inmates who escaped last month from the White County Jail are back in custody.

Illinois State Police say they arrested 24-year-old Zachery Shock of McLeansboro late Friday night in Gallatin County.

Troopers say a tip from a local resident led them to track down Shock walking in the middle of Forest Road, south of Equality. He was armed with a loaded handgun at the time of his arrest.

The following evening, the Hardin County Sheriff's Department and the Cave-In-Rock Police Department took 61-year-old Johnny Tipton into custody.

The third inmate, 28-year-old Justin Bray, was caught the day of the escape on June 16th.
