One of two federal defendants who escaped from an eastern Missouri jail is back in custody after being captured in Swansea.
KSDK-TV reports that John Wesley Jones spent two days on the run before being recaptured Wednesday morning.
Details of his capture were not immediately known.

Jones and Corey Durand Cross bolted Monday from the Lincoln County lockup northwest of St. Louis in Troy by climbing to the jail's roof before scaling down a 30-foot wall.
Cross remains at large.
Federal investigators had named Jones a suspect in the potentially multimillion-dollar August heist of an ATM-servicing business in St. Louis.
At the time of their escape, Jones and Cross had been jailed without bond on weapons charges. Cross also faces drug charges.
