Suspect Caught after Brief Escape

Meridian police say they captured a suspect, not long after he escaped custody.

Police say Moody Phillips, IV, 17, was arrested Aug. 13 on a burglary charge.

Not long after that, he was taken to the hospital when he complained of pain. He apparently escaped from that location.

Police say they took Moody back into custody over the weekend. He now faces an escape charge as well.
