OK Escapee Caught in Texas

11-10-05 - A Marshall County jail escapee who was on the run for more than two months was captured Wednesday night by Grayson County deputies. Arvel Lee Price, Jr. shot at officers before being taken into custody near a home in Dodd City, TX.

Price has been on the run since he escaped from the exercise yard at the Marshall County jail in Madill on September 4th. Jailers didn't realize he was missing until early the next morning.

Grayson Couny deputies say Price shot at them from inside the home. After a half-hour of negotiating, Price was taken into custody without incident.

Grayson County received a lead on Price last week and discovered he was in Fannin County. Deputies there tracked him down to the home where they believe he had been living.

He was brought in on two warrants for drug manufacturing. Price is also facing felony charges in Marshall County for his escape.
