Marshals help capture Iowa jail escapee

Updated: January 15, 2013 11:32AM



Members of the U.S. Marshals Service Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force were involved in the arrest of a 21-year-old man who escaped from an Iowa county jail.

Timothy Reynolds, who overpowered a jail guard at the Delaware County, Iowa, jail and stole a vehicle on Nov. 18 was found hiding in a cellar by task force members and Lafayette police.

Deputy marshals in Iowa developed leads that Reynolds possibly had fled to his father’s home in Lafayette and asked their counterparts on the Great Lakes task force to pursue the case.

Task force officers, Lafayette police and a K-9 unit descended on the father’s home and after an extensive search found Reynolds hiding in the cellar Wednesday afternoon, a spokesman for the task force said.

Reynolds will be held in the Tippecanoe County Jail awaiting extradition to Iowa.
