One Of Three SW Missouri Jail Escapees Captured In Wyoming

One of the three inmates who escaped last week from the Barry County Jail in southwestern Missouri has been captured in Wyoming. 

Thirty-seven-year-old Christopher Allen Blevins was taken into custody near Casper, Wyoming Wednesday afternoon, according to the Barry County Sheriff’s Facebook page. 

An unidentified woman was with him at the time — she was released but authorities in Missouri and Kansas are now seeking a warrant for her. 

Part of Blevins’ flight from authorities took him through Kansas. 

Two other Barry County inmates that escaped last week with Blevins — Matthew Allen Crawford and Lance Justin Stephens — are still on the run.
