Escapee caught

A convicted felon who escaped from the Wayne County Courthouse three years ago is back in the county jail.

Reginald Antwan Henry, 32, of Koonce Street, was picked up by police in Morrisville on Saturday while investigating a domestic disputel. When they learned he was wanted in Wayne, he was turned over the the Wayne County Sheriff's Office.

On April 29, 2002 in Wayne Superior Court, Henry was convicted of being a habitual felon, three counts of discharging a weapon into occupied property, one count of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and another count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. He escaped bailiffs just before court ended for the day and eluded capture. He told officers after he was arrested that he had hid in a dumpster for hours to avoid getting caught.

He is being held without bond.
