A second man who escaped from the Big Horn County jail over the weekend has been arrested in Billings.

The Billings Police Department said in a Twitter post at 4:21 a.m. that Stephen Caplett and Anthony Castro was taken into custody.

A third escapee, Andrew Parham, remains at large.

No other information was immediately released.

Castro, 34, is now behind bars in the Billings jail after a combined effort between the Billings Police Street Crimes Unit and the U.S. Marshals Service.

Billings Police Sergeant Matthew Chaney said authorities received a tip and after further investigation, were able to track Castro down and make an arrest just after 10 p.m. Monday.

Chaney did not release any further details surrounding Castro's arrest.

Castro, along with Parham, 25, and Caplet, 34, escaped Friday after several inmates overpowered a jail employee and escaped.
