Monitor intro roll vo in monitor a lamar county, alabama jail escapee is back in jail after police say he robbed a bank in mississippi.

A bare-footed john scott glasgow escaped from the lamar county jail wednesday night.

The 53 year old apparently went home, grabbed some shoes, packed his bags and headed east on highway 82.

But that's where the story becomes even more interesting.

Our stephanie poole has more on the story.

Alabama jail escapee, john scott glasgow, adds more charges to his rap sheet.

Winona chief investigator dan herod says it all began with a phone call around 8 am.

" a concerned citizen spotted the individual leaving out of the bank.

The way this guy was dressed ,you know, it's pretty hot this time of year and he was wearing a big sweatshirt and a hat so he looked out of the ordinary for this type of year."

That's when the witness realized something more serious was happening...a robbery.

" during the exchange of money during robbery one of the bank tellers was able to put a red dye pack in the money.

When the suspected exited the business the citizen saw the dye pack go off in the parking lot.she immediately called 911."

Glasgow gave the teller a note saying "this is a robbery, put all the money in the bag.

No tricks, no one will get hurt."

Winona police say the suspect showed what appeared to be a weapon under his shirt in a threatening manner.

" the teller complied with his demands and gave him the money."

Glasgow left with nearly 2-thousand dollars.

But his heist was short-lived.

A beer truck making a regular delivery was parked in the street, blocking the getaway.

Officers caught him just two hundred yards from the bank.

" we located a truck, a semi-truck and it have been reported stolen out of alabama.

He had a suitcase packed, a cooler with food and drink in it so if it hadn't been for the caller he could've been well on his way to another state or something like that."

Glasgow is being charged with escape in lamar county where he was originally charged with theft and drug charges.

Now he's in trouble in winona also where police are charging him with armed robbery.

" they're going to come over here and they're going to speak with him and that's when we'll begin going through the extradition process and all that stuff."

Bond is set at 500- thousand dollars.

Centered tonight president trump is campaigning in the battleground state of michigan after calling a last-minute press conference at the white house, where he defended himself against the bombshell revelations in the new book by journalist bob woodward.

This as the president's recorded comments on covid are having a big impact on the presidential race.

Here's cbs's ed o'keefe a defiant - and defensive -- president trump today tried to argue he was showing strength not downplaying the dangers of the coronavirus.

3:49:10 i didn't lie, i said we had to be calm, no panic but trump was privately telling author bob woodward he knew the coronavirus was a deadly airborne disease in early february... you know it's a very tricky situation.

Its- indeed it is it goes through air bob yet still the president went on to hold 7 indoor campaign rallies over the next month, packed with thousands of people.

It'll go away today, the president denied any responsibility.

This is china's fault.

And blamed woodward for not publishing sooner.

If bob woodward thought it was so bad, he should have gone to the authorities....immed iately, not waiting 4 months it's unclear what mr trump meant by the authorities.

The biden campaign sees the president's comments as a pivotal moment in the race....an admission that thousands of lives could have been saved had mr trump spoken up.

"he waved the white flag.

He walked away he didn't do a damn thing.

Think about it .

Think about what he didn't do.

It is almost criminal."

The campaign was already on the air this morning with a new ad... running mate kamala harris kept up the offensive while courting african an voters in miami today.... this is the same man, donald trump, who for days, weeks, if not months thereafter, called it a hoax.

Dismissed the seriousness of it to the point that he suggested people should not wear masks.

Tag: here in michigan, democrats are circling this airport where mister trump we're learning new information today about a monroe county bus fire.

This is a photo sent us by a viewer.

The bus fire happened on cotton gin port road, near amory, yesterday afternoon.

Monroe county schools superintendent brian jernigan tells wcbi the bus had a mechanical failure.

There were very few students, who were from smithville school, on the bus at the time and no one was injured.

Jernigan credits the bus driver for noticing the smoke and evacuating the students.

The bus is a total loss.

Centered vitalant is showing how many donors have positive covid-19 antibody tests.

The company examined more than 250 thousand donations from june until july.

In what the company considers the tupelo region, which is north mississippi, the antibody positive test rate was two point 51 percent in july.

Vitalant says it is releasing the numbers to encourage those who test positive to consider becoming a convalescent plasma donor.

The plasma donors could help current covid-19 patients with their recovery.

The deadline for the 2020 census is just 20 days away, and folks in alabama are pulling out all the stops to get their numbers up.

Earlier today, the town of carrollton hosted a special census event at the pickens county community college career center.

The purpose of the event was to bring attention to importance of the census, and get local people involved in getting the word out.

Guest speaker kenneth boswell says more people counted on the census means more federal tax dollars for their county.

"you either want your federal tax dollars to go to another state, or either stay in your state so that that can improve the quality of life for the citizens of alabama... think about it this way, if your child is 10 years old now, he'll be 20 at the end of ten years, let he or she have the same opportunities that you've had over the last decade and lifetime."

September 30 is the deadline for the 2020 census.

Top educators in the tupelo public school district are being honored this week.

The association for excellence in education is honoring "teachers of distinction" all this week.

This afternoon, awards were given to teachers at the tupelo middle school who received the honor.

Teachers who get the honor receive one thousand dollars, while assistant teachers receive 500 dollars.

The awards are made possible by many community partners and sponsors.

"one of the biggest things we do is the aee luncheon, grants, each year teachers submit grants for various projects they want to implement and we fund raise throughout the year to help support the funds we provide to each of these grant winners."

"it definitely takes a village and having partners from the community, not only does it allow us to do more for our students, but it also means we get to show our students what they get to do one day, being part of the community as well."

Typically, the "teacher of distinction" awards are presented to all winning educators at a luncheon, but because of covid 19, teachers are being honored at their schools all this week.
