SEYMOUR (WATE) - The last of the three inmates that escaped from the Grainger County Jail earlier this month has been captured, according to the Grainger County Sheriff's Department.

David Valentine escaped from the jail Nov. 8. Deputies say he was captured just after 8 p.m. Tuesday night in Seymour.

U.S. Marshals say they were en route to interview a cousin of Valentine's when someone with the Marshal's Service spotted Valentine walking from a gas station into a vehicle.

He was arrested without incident.

Valentine is currently being held at the Sevier County Detention Center.

Two other people were in Valentine's vehicle and were arrested on outstanding warrants. Tiffany Reno was wanted for a probation violation, while Brandon Martens was wanted for fishing without a license.

Dennis Rucker and Shane Farrow also escaped the jail. They were arrested last week in Pigeon Forge.
