Coosa County inmate escaped custody, considered armed and unsafe

Coosa County inmate escaped custody, considered armed and unsafe

Sheriff Terry Wilson says Shane Anthony Vernon, 27, physically circumvented jail security, and escaped Sunday afternoon.

The hunt for an escaped inmate in Coosa County is intensifying after the sheriff says the fugitive broke into a home and tied up the homeowners.

This is inmate, Shane Anthony Vernon's, second escape in less than one month.

Wilson told the newspaper Vernon is considered armed and extremely unsafe and has numerous tattoos, including one of a Chinese symbol on his neck. He was recaptured the next day.

Vernon was last spotted in a wooded area in neighboring Elmore county.

Vernon escaped for the first time on October 29 after he "forcibly removed his restraints" and ran from the jail, where he was being booked on felony charges of first degree theft of property and third degree burglary.

Vernon is described as 5-feet, 7-inches, weighing 130 pounds.

Vernon has several tattoos, including "ride or die" on his fist, writing on his forearm, a Chinese symbol on the right side of his neck and "county" on his left shoulder blade. They said he abandoned the vehicle just south of the border between Elmore and Coosa counties, and fled on foot into the woods.

During that search, authorities discovered Vernon had stolen a small, red mini bike from another home and continued to avoid captures.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the escapee is asked to contact the Coosa County Sheriff's Office in Rockford at 256-377-2211 or your local law enforcement agency.
