According to the U.S. Marshals Service and the Barry County Sheriff’s Office, he was held Monday in Springfield, Missouri — about 60 miles northeast of Barry County.
Authorities said Crawford escaped with two other prisoners: Christopher Allen Blevins, who faces charges including unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a weapon and resisting a lawful restraint; and Lance Justin Stephens, who faces charges including possession of a controlled substance and unlawful use of a weapon.
Detective Doug Henry of the Barry County Sheriff’s Office said two inmates were in the same prison pod while the third was in an adjacent pod.
He said the trio broke a hole in the roof and climbed, fleeing the building through a maintenance door.
Henry said the building was old and the roofs were made of plaster, which could have made it easier for all three to escape.
The Barry County Sheriff’s Office said five days after the escape, Blevins was captured near Casper, Wyoming — more than 800 miles from the prison.
Third inmate Lance Justin Stephens is still on the run.
