Dustin Adams back in custody after his second escape

HAMILTON COUNTY, Tenn. (WDEF) – Dustin Adams latest run didn’t last as long as his first one.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office quickly recaptured him over the weekend.

Adams walked away from a court ordered evaluation at the Moccasin Bend Mental Health Institute on Friday evening.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s officials point out that they handed him over to the hospital last week.

Adams escaped from the Hamilton County Jail back in September and was eventually recaptured in Polk County.

He was wanted on theft charges, but nothing violent.

Polk County authorities will add some new burglary and vandalism charges to the list from his re-capture.
