If Mark Rhoads hoped he'd seen the last of Brown County when he escaped from custody nearly 2 ½ years ago, he didn't get his wish.
Brown County Sheriff's deputies brought Rhoads, 46, back to Brown County Thursday from Oklahoma after authorities there were finished with him.
Rhoads remains in the Brown County Jail on multiple charges including escape, burglary of a building, burglary of a habitation and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, jail records state. His bonds exceed $100,000.
Rhoads was a jail trusty when he walked away from the Brownwood/Brown County Law Enforcement Center the evening of June 7, 2009. Authorities believed Rhoads stole a rental car from a Lake Brownwood car lot and drove it to the Lawton area, where he has family.
Rhoads was captured in Oklahoma three nights later.
Before he escaped, Rhoads had been in the Brown County Jail for about eight months on burglary and larceny charges.
