The second of three men who escaped from an Orangeburg County jail on Saturday has been caught, officials said Tuesday.

Tyshon Johnson, 27, was apprehended by members of a U.S. Marshals Service task force, according to a statement by the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities did not say where Johnson was arrested.

He made his bid for freedom along with 20-year-old Curtis Green and 27-year-old Christopher Boltin after overpowering a guard and using the guard's pepper spray on him, the statement said.

The three men were the subjects of an extensive manhunt. Johnson and Green were both being held in the jail on murder charges and authorities considered them to be dangerous.

Johnson was named as one of three suspects in a September robbery at a Santee house. Three people were shot, one fatally.

Green, who remains at large, was arrested on a murder charge more than a year after authorities say he fatally shot a 35-year-old man he found trying to steal his car outside of his Orangeburg-area home.

Boltin — originally charged with carjacking and possession of a stolen vehicle — was arrested on Sunday in Lexington County.

He appeared in court Tuesday along with two men accused of aiding the escapees. 

Boltin was charged with escape, the statement said. His father, Hoyte Boltin, and another man, Dekwon Hillard, were each accused of helping the escapees in separate incidents.

Hoyte Boltin, 51, was charged with misdemeanor assisting an escapee, the statement said. Hillard was accused of helping Johnson and Green, and faces two counts of felony aiding an escapee.   

Authorities learned of the escape around 10 p.m. Saturday, according to a prior statement by Sheriff Leroy Ravenell.
