Officials: Inmate who hid in furniture shipment in order to escape recaptured

U.S. Marshals have recaptured an escaped inmate Corey Davis, 30, after he escaped custody from a St. Clair correctional facility.

Davis was taken into custody in Bowling Green, Kentucky just after 3:30 am Saturday morning. According to authorities, Davis surrendered without incident.

Bowling Green Police Department  said they received information Davis was in a home on Warren Way late Friday evening.

Prison officials confirmed Davis concealed himself inside the trailer sometime while he was working in a furniture plant that is managed by the Alabama Correctional Industries (ACI).

Authorities said the trailer left the facility and was taken directly to the ACI facility in Montgomery around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.  Investigators found evidence today that confirmed Davis was inside the trailer and had concealed himself in an item of furniture.  Officials said the evidence showed Davis left the trailer sometime after it was parked at the ACI facility.

The ADOC believes three inmates at the prison assisted Davis in his escape.  Their identities are not being released at this time.

The ADOC is working to identify how Davis was able to gain access to the trailer without being observed by prison officials, and why he was not reported missing until a security check at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

The facility was locked down during the investigation.

Davis was sentenced to life in 2017 for a human trafficking conviction in Lauderdale County.

Jessica D. Adams, 33, of Bowling Green was also arrested and charged with Wanton Endangerment and Hindering Prosecution.
