4 jail officers suspended without pay following escape

4 jail officers suspended without pay following escape”

South Central Regional Jail staff noticed Boyes was gone on Friday around 12:30 a.m.

Boyes was scheduled to be sentenced Friday after he pleaded guilty to having a stolen vehicle, fleeing police and causing bodily harm in a February incident.

The charges are from a February, 2017 police chase that lasted 45 minutes, during which Boyes crashed into a police vehicle, sending one officer to the hospital.

According to a statement issued by the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, there had been three formal inmate head counts and two informal counts overnight.

In a surveillance photo from instead the jail, Boyes was shown wearing a dark-colored long sleeve shirt and khaki trousers - which he had obtained from an unknown source. He was also wanted for several carjackings in Ohio.

He was arrested after he rammed his vehicle into a police cruiser sending an officer to the hospital.

The exact circumstances of Boyes' escape and whether inmate count procedures were properly followed are still under investigation.

Police said the public should consider Boyes "armed and dangerous" as precaution.

He managed to escape just before 6am on Wednesday but it wasn't until 7pm that jail staff realised Boyes was missing.

Attorney Kevin Davis said he entered the jail that afternoon after his client told him he had an urgent matter he needed to discuss, according to WSAZ.

'We intend to address the episode and the results of the ongoing investigation with the utmost seriousness'. Davis went to the jail around 4 p.m. and the inmate told him that "Todd with his fingers shot off" had escaped the jail early that morning. Davis said he wrote the information on a note and gave it to a correctional officer who read it and put the note in his pocket.

"Four facility officers have been suspended without pay pending the completion of the investigation", Messina said, adding no further comment would be provided because of the ongoing investigation.
