BELLEVUE (KWWL) -

An escaped inmate from Indiana was captured early Sunday morning in Jackson County.  Authorities say 21-year-old Cody Thurman escaped from the Marion County Jail in Indianapolis Friday night while on kitchen detail.  Early Sunday morning, a bar owner in Andrew became suspicious about Thurman, searched his name online, and found out Thurman was a wanted man and called police. Sheriff's deputies picked up Thurman without incident at a nearby home around 2:30 a.m. He's in jail while Indiana authorities head to Iowa to extradite him.  He'll face escape and stolen vehicle charges.  It's not clear why he was in Iowa
