A prisoner who escaped from a prisoner transport in Olney on
Saturday has been captured.
Michael Rimmer, 33, was spotted by a Palo Pinto County
Sheriff's deputy near Interstate 20 and Highway 281, Sunday morning. He was taken into custody without incident
about 60 miles from where he was last seen.
Rimmer was being transported to a Florida prison when the
transport stopped in Olney on Saturday and Rimmer was able to get out of the
vehicle. Later in the day on Saturday, officers
tracking him found his shackles and some clothes he had been wearing. Olney Police Chief Barry Roberts said Rimmer
had been on the run for about 24 hours before he was caught.
