Two men who escaped from a minimum-security North Carolina prison have been captured in Georgia.
The North Carolina Correction Department says 21-year-old Brandon Curry and 23-year-old Justin Ramey were captured Thursday night outside Atlanta.
The two had been on the run since escaping Wednesday night from the Foothills Correctional Institution in Morganton. Officials say the men were driving in a stolen truck.
Curry is serving seven to nine years for robbery with a dangerous weapon, felony breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods. He was scheduled for release in January 2015.
Ramey was serving nine to 11 months for felony breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods and various misdemeanors. He was scheduled for release in July.
