The prisoners were picking up trash yesterday afternoon on Highway 70 West at Pomona Road when 53-year-old Michael Eugene Norris of Crossville ran off. Numerous deputies converged on the area and started looking for him.

A couple of hours later, a deputy received information that Norris was in the driveway of a residence on the 3,400 block of Old Highway 70 wanting to surrender.
