An extended weekend of freedom for a man who escaped the Pettis County Jail last Thursday ended with an early morning wake-up call from local law enforcement Wednesday.

“Like I said earlier, you can run but youcan’t hide. This bunch of folks that we have here is relentless. They will hunt you forever, and they will come up with you. There is no hiding,” said Pettis County Sheriff’s Capt. Dave Keller.

Pettis County Sheriff’s deputies and Sedalia Police surrounded 29-year-old Brandon E. McGee, of the 24000 block of state Route V, shortly after 6 a.m. as he slept on a couch at a residence located in the 1100 block of East 15th Street.

“This has been an intense manhunt situation and it came to conclusion because we have some very, very talented and very relentless people working here,” Keller said. “They have stayed with this thing and gathered information and an arrest was made at a local residence.”

Prosecutors charged McGee with one count of escape from confinement, a class D felony, on Friday. Bond is not an option. In addition, Keller said he will not escape again.

“He will not be in the cells where we had him (previously),” Keller said. “He is not going to be loose to go through another shower until we get the modifications we are doing at the jail done.”

According to court documents, McGee broke off a shower faceplate in the lower level of K pod just before 10 p.m. Thursday. Once removed, an opening was exposed that led into an exterior storage room. He was able to pass through the small opening into the room and from the room, was able to open the door.

Surveillance footage showed McGee running from the southwest corner of the jail. Authorities found a pair of sandals commonly worn by Pettis County inmates a short distance from the outer door of the exterior storage room.

In addition to the new charge of escape from confinement, McGee faces charges of three counts of fraudulent use of a credit device. He was also awaiting trial on two no-bond probation violation warrants from Benton and Morgan counties.

The courts convicted McGee of second-degree assault and possession of a controlled substance in July 2013. The charges stem from an incident that happened in August 2012 in Benton and Morgan counties. He was placed on five years of probation in those cases, but that probation was revoked in January.

McGee is the first person to escape the Pettis County Jail since its construction in 2000.
