Killeen police officers captured the remaining two teenage jail escapees Wednesday, just after 2:00 p.m. in the southwest part of town.

Detectives were patrolling the area of Robinette just before 2:00 p.m. when they saw two black males walking in the area that matched the description of the two remaining escapees. When the detectives attempted to speak with them, the males took off running, and the detectives gave chase. The 16-year-old male was located in the 4000 block of Stallion Drive and taken into custody at 2:18 p.m. Shortly thereafter, the second suspect was located at 2:41 p.m. in the 4000 block of Stallion Drive as well and taken into custody.

These males were involved in the escape from the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center on June 8. The four males escaped by kicking an exterior door open from the recreational area and fled on foot. Just after 2:00 p.m. on June 8, two of the juvenile suspects, a 15-year-old and 16-year-old, were taken into custody. The other two remained on the run until Wednesday afternoon. The 16-year-old was transported to the Youth Services Division; he will be transferred to the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center. The three male juveniles will be charged with escape from custody. The case involving the 17-year-old escaping was reviewed by the Bell County District Attorney's office, and a complaint was returned charging Bruce Michael Wiggins with Escape. He remains in the Killeen City Jail until his arraignment on June 13, after which he will be transferred to the Bell County Jail.
