Escapee captured in Paris

An escapee from the Franklin County Detention Center was recaptured Tuesday in Paris and turned over to Franklin County authorities.

Toby Clay Tygart, 52, of Subiaco had been in custody since early April on drug charges and was a sheriff’s trusty at the detention center for at least two months. Tygart was last seen about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. He was a trusty for kitchen and painting work.

Logan County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy David Spicer said they were contacted by Franklin County Sheriff Anthony Boen on Tuesday afternoon with information that Tygart was at a residence on Fuller Street in Paris.

Boen and some of his deputies traveled to Paris where they met with Spicer, Logan County Sheriff Steve Smith and other deputies and then went to the Fuller Street address, where Tygart was found in an outbuilding on the property.

Spicer said Tygart was taken into custody without incident a little before 6 p.m. and turned over to Franklin County officials, because he had no outstanding criminal charges in Logan County.

Four other people at the Fuller Street residence were arrested on suspicion of felony hindering apprehension. They are Michael Arney, 59, of Paris, Michael Lee, 46, of Paris, Rickie, Shinabarger, 41, of Omaha, Neb. and Jennifer Strong, 35, of Paris. They are presently being held at the Logan County Detention Center in Paris.
