One of the inmates who walked away from Marion Adjustment Center on March 25 has been apprehended.


Josh Levi Hogue, 30, was captured in Pulaski County at his wife's home, according to Det. Glen Bland of the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office.

"They were surprised," Bland said.

He added that Hogue was taken without incident.

"We went in with enough manpower and fast enough that he had to go peacefully," Bland said. "We didn't take any chances."

After Hogue was taken into custody, he also confessed to stealing a truck from LaRue County, Bland said.

Hogue had been serving a 30-year sentence on Pulaski County charges of second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He had been scheduled to meet with the parole board in May.

Bland added that the U.S. Marshals also took part in the apprehension, and he believes they are also working to find Brandon Saylor, who walked away from MAC the same day as Hogue.

Saylor, 27, is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds. He has brown hair, blue eyes, a medium build and a medium complexion. He also has several tattoos, including a skull, a Klansman and a cross on his back, a joker on his right thigh, a tribal symbol on his upper left arm and a skull with barbed wire on his upper right arm.

Anyone with information about Saylor's whereabouts should call Marion Adjustment Center at (270) 692-9622, the Lebanon Police Department at (270) 692-2121, the Marion County Sheriff's Office at (270) 692-3051 or the Kentucky State Police at 1-800-222-5555.
