A Roane County escaped inmate was captured today. Deputies, along with Harriman Detective Brian Turner and the U.S. Marshals Smoky Mountain Fugitive Task Force, took Cameron Simpson into custody at a residence on Riggs Chapel Road this morning. Simpson was transported to the Roane County jail. Simpson left a inmate work detail in Harriman last Friday during a lunch break and took a Harriman street department pickup truck in the process. Sheriff Jack Stockton says the vehicle was later found unoccupied on Powers Loop Road in Morgan County.
