Missing Lawton inmate caught breaking into OKC church

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._The inmate who went missing Saturday morning has been caught in Oklahoma City after he was caught breaking into a church.

The pastor of Church of the Living God, which is on the city’s northeast side, says he was preparing for his Wednesday night service in his office when he heard something in the church's dining area and went to investigate. When 29-year-old Joshua Myers saw the pastor, he ran out to the front where the pastor stopped him at gunpoint. Myers made a break for it before the police got there, and that's when the pastor fired two shots.

Myers was not hit and the pastor says he wasn’t aiming at him. Myers was later taken into custody after neighbors saw him hiding on their property and called police.

He is currently being held in the Oklahoma County Jail for second-degree burglary on a $3,000 bond. It’s unclear if his bond will change knowing that he’s an escaped inmate. Myers was serving time at the Lawton Community Corrections Center for second-degree burglary and endeavoring to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute.

No word when he will be transferred back to Lawton.
