HUNTSVILLE (WATE) - An inmate that escaped from the Scott County Jail Thursday afternoon has been caught.

Scott Co. authorities say Patrick Chitwood, 31, was caught around 11:30 Saturday night in a wooded area near Helenwood by a Morgan Co. K-9 unit and Scott Co. deputies.

Officials say Chitwood escaped from the jail in Huntsville about 4:00 p.m. Thursday by scaling two fences and going through razor wire.

Officers used search dogs to track him Thursday night, but the dogs lost Chitwood's scent when it started raining.
