NATCHEZ — Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputies captured a second inmate Tuesday afternoon, ending a two-day search that spanned throughout the city and county.
Dominique Williams, 20, ran from a jailer Sunday while the two were emptying trash in a Dumpster in the parking lot behind the jail. Williams was arrested earlier this year on charges of burglary and violating probation. Williams was made a kitchen trusty a month ago.
ACSO investigators had been searching for Williams since his escape. On Tuesday, investigators received a tip that Williams was going to be transported from a location in the county to an undisclosed location in the city, Sheriff Chuck Mayfield said.

At approximately 4:15 p.m., Mayfield and ACSO investigators intercepted and surrounded a vehicle on Martin Luther King Jr. Street near Vaughn Drive and found Williams inside.
Williams was taken into custody without incident. He was charged Tuesday with escape and detained at the Adams County Jail.
More arrests are pending as investigators continue to identify subjects who aided Williams during his escape, Mayfield said.
“We have information outside of him of some people we know that were with him and helped him along the way, so there will definitely be some more arrests,” Mayfield said. “We’re going to wait until (today) to sit down with (Williams) and talk to him to get more information about what he all had planned.”
Moments after Williams escaped Sunday, another trusty, Jonquil Jackson, 21, ran from the jailer and crew of trusties who were cutting brush in the parking lot behind the jail. Jackson was arrested on two counts of burglary and receiving stolen property and was made a trusty with the road crew.
The two inmates ran through the downtown area while being pursued by local law enforcement agencies.
Jackson was apprehended Sunday afternoon.
