Deputies locate escaped York Co. prisoner

An escaped prisoner on the run since yesterday has been captured.

YORK COUNTY, S.C. -- Deputies say they located a man who had escaped custody from the South Carolina Department of Corrections facility, according to York County Sheriff's Office.

Michael Eugene Davis, 44, escaped from the York County Vehicle Maintenance Shop on Justice Boulevard at approximately 3:30 p.m. in a stolen York County work truck Tuesday. On Thursday, deputies located Davis in a home in the Lake Wylie area.

The truck Davis stole was also recovered, deputies say.

Davis was serving for a family court bench warrant and a commitment charge for an unpaid traffic ticket but had previously been arrested for third-degree domestic violence, which is currently pending in court.
