Police captured two escaped murderers Wednesday, nine days after they broke out of a maximum-security prison in Arkansas.

Officer Skyler Clark said he spotted Raymond Coble, 30, and Tommy Winnberry, 38, as they drove through this city of 7,000 about 80 miles from Kansas City."They were watching me pretty close, and I got a little suspicious of them," he said. A computer check of the pickup truck's out-of-state tags revealed it was stolen, with two escapees as possible occupants.

Clark called for assistance and stopped the truck after the men left a convenience store. They were arrested without resistance, Clark said. Neither was carrying a weapon.
