St. Joe Escapee Picked Up in Kalamazoo

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A St. Joseph County inmate is back in a cell after escaping from a jail work crew, and piling up a brand new list of charges. 

Deputies said Adryll Matthews, 23, stole a Chrysler Pacifica and drove it to Kalamazoo, where he was spotted on the north side.  Tuesday night, a Kalamazoo Public Safety Officer spotted the Pacifica and a chase began that ended when stop strips blew out the SUV’s tires. 

He fled on foot and was eventually found nearby, hiding under a loading dock near Kilgore and Woodmont. 

Matthews only had about two months left on his sentence for receiving stolen property.  The new list of charges could mean he has earned a trip to state prison this time, and not just a stint in the county lockup.  

His few hours of freedom may result in years more in jail.
