MONROE COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — A misunderstanding last week at the Monroe County Circuit Court let one man walk free, but he was recaptured today.

Monroe County sheriff’s deputies arrested 25-year-old Dillon Bennett today while he attempted to board a bus to skip town.

Bennett appeared on bond last week at the Monroe County Circuit Court. A misunderstanding on behalf of the deputy handling Bennett at the time resulted in Bennett walking free for several days. Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said the deputy was unaware of a Mississippi Department of Corrections hold on Bennett, and mistakenly assumed the judge simply continued his bond.

Cantrell said last week he didn’t anticipate recapturing Bennett would present difficulties.

Deputies arrested Bennett on one charge of escape.

Bennett is currently detained at the Monroe County Detention Center.
