BENTON, KY (KFVS) - One of three Marshall County Jail escapees has turned himself in to police Tuesday morning.

Gage Jobe was one of three inmates who escaped on Saturday April 4. He was taken to the Marshall County Detention Center where he faces escape charges.

Police are still searching for Travis L. Bonapfel and Jeremiah J. Nicholas.

Authorities believe the men may have stolen a truck.

On Saturday, April 4, deputies with the Marshall County Sheriff's Office responded to Mike Miller Park in Draffenville when staff reported a park vehicle stolen.  The vehicle is described as a red 2003 Ford F-150 with a Kentucky license plate K9997. 

The truck is a single cab with “Marshall County Parks” written on the side of the cab.

There is also a silver tool box in the bed of the truck.

Authorities believe the men escaped in the truck and changed into stolen brown coveralls they took from a storage facility.

Detention center clothing was found near the scene of the theft. 

Kentucky State Police continue to search for three inmates who they say walked away from the Marshall County Jail in Benton Friday evening.

According to KSP in Mayfield, troopers are currently working to find 27-year-old Travis L. Bonapfel, 21-year-old Jeremiah J. Nicholas and 23-year-old Gage A. Jobe.

Bonapfel is described as a white male, 6'03", weighing 200 pounds. He was convicted of trafficking heroin and trafficking controlled substances from Campbell County, KY. He was last seen wearing a long-sleeve black shirt, blue jeans and black and white shoes.

Nicholas is described as a white male, 6'5", weighing 250 pounds. He was convicted of 2 counts of burglary and unlawful possession of meth precursor from Calloway and Marshall counties. He was last seen wearing a black toboggan, black long-sleeve shirt, gray undershirt, blue jeans and black shoes.

Jobe is described as a white male, 5'11", weighing 205 pounds. He was convicted of receiving stolen property and wanton endangerment from Marshall County, KY. He was last seen wearing a dark blue coat, blue jeans and gray shoes.

Officials say Jobe has made confirmed threats about contact he may have with law enforcement or anyone else who tries to apprehend him.
