Four Georgia Inmates At Large After Escaping Jail

Four inmates, including a murder suspect, are at large after escaping a central Georgia jail through a damaged window and a cut fence, USA Today reports. Bibb County Sheriff David Davis said the inmates escaped from the Bibb County Detention Center in Macon, Ga., 84 miles southeast of Atlanta, at 3:30 a.m. on Monday. He identified the four inmates as Joey Fournier, 52; Marc Kerry Anderson, 24; Johnifer Dernard Barnwell, 37; and Chavis Demaryo Stokes, 29. We are following up on some leads as to where these individuals may be," Davis said. "This is an all-hands-on-deck situation."

Jail staff found a break in the perimeter fence around 6 a.m.. After reviewing video footage, jail staff discovered that the four men escaped from a window in a second-floor dayroom and ran out of a break in the fence. Video footage showed a blue Dodge Challenger outside the jail earlier in the night and appeared to show an individual tampering with the fence, Davis said. The person then brought "some items into the enclosed area of the fence," the sheriff said, adding that authorities believe the items were used to help the inmates escape. It was not clear whether the four men left the jail in the vehicle seen on the video footage, entered another vehicle, or left on foot.
