Joshua Lynn Mince-Dies was reportedly working with the county highway department when he left the crew last week.
Macon County Sheriff's Detective Mark Gammons reported that he and jail administrator Brad Murphy was looking for the inmate in Lebanon on Thursday, June 16, when they reportedly saw Matthew Shane Dies, Mince-Dies's brother, enter into a home in Lebanon.
Detective Gammons stated that he continued to wait for the inmate for over an hour, but he never showed up. At approximately 7:30 p.m. Detective Gammons, Chief Deputy Robin Gregory, and Captain Darrell Taylor went to the house and arrested Matthew Shane Dies for criminal capias for aggravated robbery, burglary and theft over $1000. These charges reportedly stem from the Dixon Springs market robbery and a home break-in that occurred on Shrum Cemetery Road.
He was taken without incident by the Wilson County Sheriff's Department. He was then transported to Macon County Sheriff's Department by Deputy Brian Carter where he remains lodged at the jail on a $100,000 bond.
He was questioned about the whereabouts of his brother, but gave authorities no information.
Mince-Diaz was originally held on charges of violation of probation for forgery and theft charges.
Mince-Dies is reportedly a 21-year-old white male, 6'2 in height, weighs 205 lb. He has tattoos on both arms and abdomen area and a scar on his right shoulder. He has black hair, cut very short, and hazel eyes. He also has a goatee.
