After escaping over the weekend from a Mississippi jail that is already under federal investigation for suspected mismanagement, four inmates are now at large.
A crack in a cell and a hole in the roof allowed the four inmates to escape the Raymond Detention Center, a prison close to Jackson, Mississippi, about 8 p.m. on Saturday, according to Hinds County Sheriff Tyree Jones.
Jones speculated that “(they) may have camped out on the roof and left in various directions at various times.”
The four inmates—Dylan Arrington, Casey Grayson, Corey Harrison, and Jerry Raynes—were behind bars for a variety of felony offenses, the majority of which included theft.
Jones claimed that one of the inmates stole a car from Hinds County Public Works, which was later found in a Houston, Texas, area. According to WAPT-TV, investigators also think a stolen Chevy Silverado is related to the escape.

Jones stated, “We are actively and vigourously looking for these people, and we hope to have them back in custody soon.” To rapidly return them to custody, “we are requesting the assistance of other agencies, including our federal partners.”
A federal judge issued an unprecedented takeover order for the facility in July after finding that inadequate staffing and monitoring had resulted in “a stunning array of assaults, as well as deaths.” After the county submitted a move for reconsideration, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals delayed that order in December.
