Colquitt County, Georgia - July 18, 2011 -

Two state inmates are back behind bars after escaping from the Colquitt County prison on July 15.

The prison warden says inmates James Miller and Bobby Gunter tripped an electric box, unlocked their cell door, and escaped out a fire exit. He says Miller headed north to Macon to seek shelter with family.

He was picked up on July 16 in a stolen truck.

Gunter was tracked to an abandoned home about three miles from the prison.

Both men face one to five years of additional time for the escape charge.

Miller faces more for his alleged truck theft.
