Baraga County Escaped Prisoner Found

An anonymous tip has helped put the man who escaped from the Baraga County Jail 5 days ago is back in police custody.

28–year–old Brandon Cote is in jail tonight.

A tipster told police over the weekend that Cote was in a home in Zeba.

County sheriff’s deputies, and the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Tribal Police, arrested him at that home at about 8:30 last night.

He escaped from the county jail on foot last Wednesday night.

The Sheriff’s Department wants to thank residents for their help in re–capturing Cote.
