(KTEN) — Two Fannin County Jail inmates who escaped on Saturday evening are no longer at large.

Bonham police Lt. Frank Deater said Ramon Perez was in contact with the Bryan County Sheriff's Office by phone, and they encouraged him to turn himself in. Deater said Perez walked into the Bryan County Courthouse, took off his hoodie, and was taken into custody.

Perez had been jailed on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Bonham schools adopted a secure lockout status Wednesday morning as authorities continued their search for the other escapee, Raymond Ross. Ross was captured by a member of the search team in Bonham.

A state police helicopter was seen circling the city after a man believed to be Ross was spotted asking people for rides. Bonham police asked residents to steer clear of the area west of Star Street; east of State Highway 121; south of Russell Avenue; and north of Sam Rayburn Drive.  People living in that area were advised to remain inside and lock their doors.

Ross had been jailed for drug possession, evading arrest with a motor vehicle, and possessing a firearm as a felon.
