A pair of prison inmates who escaped Columbia Correctional Institution in Wisconsin were arrested Friday after turning up at a nonprofit that feeds the homeless, police said.

James Robert Newman, 37, and Thomas E. Deering, 46, were taken into custody after arriving at the Rockford, Illinois, nonprofit some 90 miles south from where they escaped. Rockford police said via Twitter that the men were recognized from their wanted photos.

Newman was serving time for kidnapping and firearms charges, and Deering was imprisoned for burglary, kidnapping and sex assault charges, according to Wisconsin jail records.

Portage police said Thursday the two were believed to be headed toward the Madison area, south of the prison, and not believed to be in Portage.

The Sheriff’s Office advised local residents to lock their doors and stay home. The Wisconsin Department of Corrections said the men were considered dangerous.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Wisconsin has been under a statewide safer-at-home order, except for certain activities deemed essential, since March 25.
