COLFAX (AP) — The female Avoyelles Parish prisoner who escaped Saturday after attending church has been captured near Colfax, and two Pineville residents were arrested with her.

The Town Talk reported 25-year-old Veronica Ann Dubois was captured Tuesday by the U.S. Marshall Service Fugitive Apprehension Task Force and the Grant Parish Sheriff's Office. Deputies say Dubois was found at a home with Pineville residents Michael Proveaux and Cynthia Fredieu.

Both Proveaux and Fredieu were arrested and booked with being an accessory after the fact to simple escape.

Dubois escaped from the Avoyelles Parish Sheriff's Office Detention Center in Simmesport Saturday night after attending a church service within the prison.

It was unclear whether Proveaux and Fredieu have attorneys.
