Indiana Fugitive Found, Arrested More Than 2,000 Miles Away in Washington

Jamie Adams was caught in Arlington, Washington on Thursday.

ARLINGTON, Wash. -- A Delaware County man who cut off his ankle monitor and was on the run for two months was captured Thursday by federal marshals -- more than 2,000 miles away from Muncie.

The Star Press says 46-year-old Jamie Adams, the target of a manhunt since October when he escaped from house arrest, was taken into custody in Arlington, Washington, about 50 miles north of Seattle. 

As a result, he has been charged with escape, and could spend up to 2 1/2 years in prison. 

Adams had been on house arrest as the result of a meth case.

He was previously convicted of murder in 1991 and released from prison in 2015.  Adams was 18 when he received a 60-year prison term after he pleaded guilty to murder for the stabbing death of Daniel Barker.
