KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Two Louisiana prisoners missing for nearly two months were caught in Knoxville this week, and investigators believe the men pretended to be Hurricane Katrina victims to get aid.

Zachary Arabie, serving a 20-year sentence for armed robbery, was captured Thursday at the University of Tennessee. Steven Ridge, serving 10 years for forgery and theft, was arrested Monday at a gas station, allegedly after trying to buy gas with fake money.
