Atoka County Escapee Captured

4-3-06 - Marshall Hogan was arrested Monday evening around 6:30 p.m. in Durant. U.S. Marshalls Task Force helped Atoka Co. run down leads. They then arrested Hogan from the Budget Inn in Durant on Highway 70 near Wal-Mart.

Deputies started toward the motel room when Hogan ran out the front door and police were forced to tackle him. Officials believe Hogan has been in the motel since his escape. Police also say that Stevie Morgan, Hogan's girlfriend was an accomplice in his escape. She could face federal charges of aiding and abetting a criminal.

Back in January Hogan stole a deputy’s patrol car and then led them on a chase and set forest fires to cover his tracks. Hogan escaped from the Atoka County Jail by slipping out a back door.
