Released by Sheriff Danny Pirtle with Rusk County:

RUSK COUNTY - On  Sunday September 13, 2009 at approximately 10:15 pm Escapee James Craig McGee and another black male were taken into custody by law enforcement in the 200 block of Palace Street, Tyler, Texas during a traffic stop. Also taken into custody earlier in the evening was a black female suspect who was arrested in connection with McGee's escape. McGee's return to jail is the direct result of a cooperative effort between agencies and jurisdictions. Investigative leads obtained throughout the day produced the traffic stop which resulted in McGee's re-arrest without incident. Officers and investigators from the Rusk County Sheriff's Office, Texas Rangers, Rusk County District Attorney's office, U.S. Marshal's Office, Smith County Sheriff's Office, Smith County District Attorney's Office and Tyler Police Department all worked toward McGee's capture.
