LEXINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

Two inmates are back in police custody after escaping a Lexington prison Monday, Kentucky State Police confirm.

Jordan Green and Waltez Franklin were located in Harrison County Tuesday afternoon, according to reports at the scene.

Troopers from KSP Dry Ridge Post and police K-9 units helped track down the escapees outside a home on Corinth Hinton Road, near the Grant and Scott county lines.

The pair escaped from Blackburn Correctional Complex about 8:10 p.m. Monday, according to Kentucky State Police.

The Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney's office called Green, 24, an "extremely dangerous" convicted violent offender. 

Green was convicted of charges in Boone and Kenton counties on several charges including robbery, burglary and theft, state prison records show. He entered the prison system in April 2011 and is expected to remain incarcerated until October 2031, though he was eligible for parole next year.

While Kenton County authorities described Green as "extremely dangerous," prison records show is risk assessment rating as "medium."

Franklin, 23, was serving a 20-year sentence for convictions out of Warren County for robbery and assault.

Officials have not said how they escaped the facility
