They said about 30 minutes later while doing a security check, they were alerted that Grantham was nowhere to be found. After searching the jail and looking at internal security cameras, they were able to see Grantham leaving the area just before 4:30 in the morning.

Deputies announced that they had recaptured Grantham Saturday evening around 5 p.m. He was located at an address in Rockdale County. No one was injured.
