One of six teenagers still missing after a large jail break at a Nashville detention center has been captured, police said Friday. The escaped 18-year-old was taken into custody from an apartment complex in Hermitage, Tennessee, about 20 miles east of the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center. Officials said detainee Andre Davis had roots in the Nashville suburb, and police began searching for him there after hearing multiple reports of car break-ins, reported NBC affiliate WSMV.

More than 30 juvenile detainees escaped from Woodland Hills on Monday night after slipping through a weak spot in a perimeter fence. Most of them were captured the following day. The detention center also was the scene of a disturbance Wednesday when detainees managed to break out of the building and attack some of the guards in the yard. The five teens still at large are described as the most dangerous of those who escaped. “As we work to bring them into custody, our officers will look closely at anyone who is knowingly providing assistance to the escapees,” Nashville Metro Police Chief Steve Anderson said in a statement. “Those persons could potentially be charged with a felony for harboring or being an accessory.”
