Marion County escapee back in court
Yarnel Bagley had his first appearance this morning in Marion County after being arrested in Jacksonville yesterday. 17-year-old Bagley escaped from the Marion County Jail for the second time on April 19. Marion County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jennifer Lowe says the Sheriff’s Office collaborated with many different agencies to capture Bagley.
“We’ve been working with some leads that led us to the Jacksonville area and reached out to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office and they put an intelligence team together with our MCSO people that were up there,” she says.
Lowe adds Bagley will now be placed under 24-hour surveillance.
