INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Fifty-two-year-old Rondell Reed is under lock and key after being caught by deputies in southwestern Ohio. The Indian River County murder suspect will soon be on his way to a local courtroom and now faces new criminal charges.

The high speed pursuit that eventually led to his capture and arrest was caught on a police car dashboard camera.

Rondell Reed's stolen getaway vehicle flipped as he roared off an I-75 exit ramp in Ohio. Police say Reed ran into a telephone pole and suffered minor injuries.

Fellow escapee Levi Taylor was caught within 15 hours of their daring jail break one week ago. Reed eluded police for five days before his wild ride came to a screeching halt.

Authorities say Reed first stole a truck in Sebastian on Wednesday; then, they say, he ditched that truck and stole an SUV from a senior citizen in Georgia.

The trail then headed north, where, police say, Reed confronted a 71-year-old Tennessee woman sitting in her car and tried to grab her purse.

"She tried to push him back. When she did that, that's when he got violent and stabbed her several times," said Knoxville Police spokesperson Darrell DeBusk

That woman is now recovering. When witness descriptions fit Reed, the dragnet tightened.

Reed once worked a factory job in Tennessee and his ex-wife lives in Knoxville. U.S. Marshals there called on her. "She said she hadn't heard him in over 12 years and didn't expect to, and agreed with us in our assessment that he was a dangerous individual, and she hoped that we caught him soon," said Warren Mays, a U.S. Marshal Service spokesperson.

The pieces began to fall right into place, and police - on alert - finally ended this escaped inmate's run from the law.
