HED:Alabama escapee caught in Amory

AMORY – Police nabbed an Alabama jail escapee Tuesday night and arrested an Amory man on charges of assisting him.

Terry Wright, of Sulligent, Ala., a fugitive from a Lamar County, Ala., jail, was arrested on a charge of felony jail escape after Amory police found him hiding in a Seventh Street South residence Tuesday night, Police Chief Ronnie Bowen said.

Stephen Hulett, 40, of Amory was charged with harboring a fugitive. Hulett was released Wednesday on a $500 bond.

Police are waiting to see if Wright will waive extradition procedures to quickly return him to Alabama.

Amory police said they believe Wright was serving a sentence for felony assault at the Lamar County facility.
