Escaped convict captured in Kingsport

KINGSPORT — A man who escaped from a medium to minimum security correctional facility in Kentucky more than two years ago has been apprehended in Kingsport, with federal authorities saying he also faces burglary charges in Washington County.

According to a press release from the U.S. Marshals Service, Brandon Saylor, 29, was located Wednesday evening at 1768 Whispering Hills Drive. As law enforcement approached he reportedly attempted to run out a side door, but was met by waiting Marshals and taken into custody.

Multiple other agencies assisted in the investigation and capture, including the Kingsport Police Department, Washington County Sheriff's Department and Bean Station Police Department.
