GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Two men wanted for escaping from Community Corrections a week ago are back behind bars.

Matthew Hubbard, a registered sex offender, and Clinton Jensen were arrested Saturday night.

Officials say the two left Community Corrections last Sunday night.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office got a tip that Hubbard was at a Grand Junction Home. When they got there, they found him hiding in a closet.

Jensen was arrested after being spotted in the parking lot of Walgreens at 29 Road and North Avenue. Officers had to tase him after they say he tried to get away and wouldn’t cooperate with them.

A woman accused of aiding Hubbard and Jensen in their escape has been arrested again as well. The Sheriff's Office found Amanda Eddy hiding in the same home they found Hubbard.

She had was first arrested on Tuesday for helping the men evade capture. Upon bonding out of jail she was told to have no contact with the men. She is now facing three more felony charges for violating her bond and seeing Hubbard again.

Eddy told investigators that Jensen and Hubbard left Community Corrections because they had been caught with tobacco and didn't want to go back to jail.
