Escaped inmate captured in Hartselle

A Hartselle man who walked off his work detail last week was captured this morning, authorities said.

Burt Anthony Williams, 44, was arrested this morning in the Hartselle area near Vest Road without incident and transported to the Morgan County Jail, according to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office. He was arrested on a felony warrant for first degree escape and booked with no bond.

Authorities have been searching for Williams and a fellow inmate since Dec. 30 when they both left their detail at Morgan County Environmental Services. Authorities are still searching for Dustin Michael Jenkins, 29, also from Hartselle.
