WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) -Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin confirms Coosa County escapee, Shane Vernon, kidnapped a man at his home Monday night and drove to Georgia.

Franklin says Vernon parked the stolen silver van in a highly vegetated area, out of sight on the kidnapping victim's property. Vernon then broke into the house, located on Bradley Road in Wetumpka, and waited for the man to come home.

Vernon stole the victim's car, driving to Douglasville, Georgia, outside Atlanta. He later abandoned the kidnapping victim and the victim's black Pontiac G2. The victim then was able to safely make it to a police station, according to Franklin.

After escaping from jail on Sunday, he tied up an elderly couple in their home in Rockford, stealing their car and guns. 

Monday he tied up a young family at gunpoint inside their home in Titus, stealing cash and a silver van, which was later abandoned about seven miles away from the second home invasion.
