A three-day search for two inmates sought in the killing of their guards on a prison bus in Georgia expanded on Thursday, with a sheriff saying the fugitives could be halfway across the country by now. Happening soon: Federal Bureau of Investigation to announce expanded effort to catch escapees wanted in the murder of two Ga. prison guards. One officer was driving the bus.

She said both men were taken into custody in Christiana, Tennessee.

Police officials stopped a vehicle they believed to be Rowe and DuBose on Interstate 24 near the Epps Mill Road exit.

"This is the greatest effort I have ever seen, and it's not just because of the crime", Sills said. It's because the public is in grave danger. "These are risky, seriously unsafe, vicious hoodlums".

Sills would not comment on how they broke through the barrier, saying they are focused on capturing the "vicious hoodlums" and will withhold details that could jeopardize prosecution. The FBI said it will put up billboards in several states starting Thursday. The two men were cellmates. The last thing police know is that the pair stole a auto in the early hours of Wednesday morning. They have formed a staging area outside the Morgan County Sheriff's Office. She told Elliot that even with all of the officers at the scene, she still doesn't feel safe.

Authorities say the reward has increased to $130,000 for information leading to the arrest of two escaped Georgia inmates wanted for killing two prison guards.

The theft was not discovered until after 7 a.m. Wednesday, giving the pair plenty of time "to get out of state", Sills said.

The inmates were among a group of 33 from Baldwin State Prison that was being driven in a van Tuesday by two officers.

The inmates have been cellmates a few times in Georgia's prisons, had known each other for "quite a while" and may have planned the escape together, Department of Corrections Assistant Commissioner Ricky Myrick said. The men then carjacked one driver, but later ditched that vehicle for a pickup truck.

The first came from Jake Guentzel who threw a rebound towards Pekka Rinne , which inexplicably went in. The Pittsburgh Penguins have taken a 2-0 lead over the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup Final.

Dozier said that when he was alerted to their deaths, "The pain and anguish that was in the toes of my feet went up to my heart". 'We've grown to expect this.

"The nature of our profession is inherently risky, but the climate we live in today is a notice that once again, no matter what uniform you wear, there are individuals who have no regard for the job we do".

The corrections department identified the victims as Christopher Monica, 42, who began working there in 2009, and Curtis Billue, 58, who would have marked his 10th anniversary with the department next month.

Monica, 42, a sergeant, worked for the department for nearly eight years and leaves a wife. A family friend created a GoFundMe page for Monica's family.

"We will do everything in our power to support their loved ones, and we will not forget their sacrifice and service", Deal said. "There's an infinite number of people that may well be helping them outside", the sheriff said.

The FBI has also released a tip line - 1-877-926-8332 - for new leads.

They left 31 other inmates locked in the bus with the two dead guards, and took the driver's phone.

Rowe was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for multiple armed robberies; Dubose was serving 20 years for armed robbery and aggravated assault. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
