A man who escaped from the Logan State Police Headquarters on Old Logan Road Monday has been caught.

37-year old David Jeffrey had been arrested on drug violations and a parole violation for a sex offense in the state of Virginia.

Police began searching in the area around the detachment on Monday night, including the Mill Creek and Lake areas. Jeffrey was reportedly captured around 2 p.m. Tuesday in Justice Addition.

West Virginia State Troopers from other detachments came to assist in the search for Jeffrey. The WVSP said a review of the circumstances of surrounding Jeffrey’s escape will be done and they will take measures to insure it can’t happen again.
